clock_driver_simidle.c: Add BSP_CLOCK_DRIVER_DELAY

This allows the BSP to define an optional spin delay which is
useful for making time appear to pass at a rate closer to
wall time. On the Edison, this was used with a polled console
driver to slow polling to a reasonable rate and make time
pass reasonably close to correctly even with no clock tick
