arm: Get rid of pointless have_generic_timer param

The ArmSystem class has a parameter to indicate whether it is
configured to use the generic timer extension or not. This parameter
doesn't affect any feature flags in the current implementation and is
therefore completely unnecessary. In fact, we usually don't set it
even if a system has a generic timer. If we ever need to check if
there is a generic timer present, we should just request a pointer and
check if it is non-null instead.

ARM regressions pass. All backends build.
