Documentation: devicetree: Update Exynos MCT bindings description
This patch updates description of device tree bindings for Exynos MCT (multicore timers). Namely: - added note about simplified specification of local timer interrupts, when using single per-processor interrupt for all local timers, - changed first example that was incorrectly suggesting that global timer interrupts are optional, - simplified example interrupt map, - added example showing simplified local timer interrupt specification.

-Example 1: In this example, the system uses only the first global timer
- interrupt generated by MCT and the remaining three global timer
- interrupts are unused. Two local timer interrupts have been

+ For MCT block that uses a per-processor interrupt for local timers, such
+ as ones compatible with "samsung,exynos4412-mct", only one local timer
+ interrupt might be specified, meaning that all local timers use the same
+ per processor interrupt.

+Example 1: In this example, the IP contains two local timers, using separate
+ interrupts, so two local timer interrupts have been specified,
