If it's in periodic mode, the update should still be propagated to the
hardware, assuming the generic time keeping code doesn't produce an

    `-__clockevents_set_state(, CLOCK_EVT_STATE_PERIODIC)
      `-dev->set_mode (twd_set_mode)

That re-writes the TWD_TIMER_LOAD register based on twd_timer_rate,
which would have been updated by twd_update_frequency().

The question I posed earlier remains: is clockevents_update_freq()
failing?  We don't know, because we never check its return value.

Another thing to look at is whether we reach twd_set_mode().

Lastly, printing the values of the TWD_TIMER_LOAD and TWD_TIMER_COUNTER
after twd_set_mode() has written TWD_TIMER_LOAD might provide some
hints as to what's going on.
