[coreboot] [PATCH] v2: ICH7: Drop non-working enable_hpet() for now

Please correct me if I'm wrong (I don't have NDA'd Intel datasheets, I
can only check the public ones), but I think the enable_hpet() in the
ICH7 code will not work for ICH7. It should work for ICH4/ICH5 or so,
but ICH7 requires a completely different init involving RCBA, offset
0x3404, it seems.

Thus, drop the non-working code, add a TODO until somebody writes the
proper code for ICH7. Maybe I'll do that if nobody beats me to it, but
it may take a while.
