[riot-notifications] [RIOT-OS/RIOT] sam0/timer: don't restrict timer to 1 MHz (#11610)

When converting the existing drivers into one general timer driver, I forgot to remove this check.
It doesn't make any sense anymore as the frequency parameter is otherwise unused.

The frequency of the timer is the frequency of the associated GCLK divided by the prescaler.

The prescaler only allows rather coarse steps (divide by 1; 2; 4; 8; 16; 64; 256; 1024), so it has to be tweaked together with the source clock to get the desired frequency.
