Dear rioters,

at today's maintainer meeting [1] we discussed to finally eliminate the
special treatment of the hwtimer (being a separate module within core). Though
the kernel itself doesn't require this module, we could not think of any
useful application without a timer. Since not including and/or initializing
the hwtimer caused several hard-to-find bugs in the past, we decided to make
building, linking, and initializing it a default behavior from now on. I'll
prepare an according PR within the next days.

If anyone sees a good reason not to do this, speak now of forever hold your
