Making CLOCK_TICK_RATE a variable in linux

P: 3
I am using linux 2.6.19, I want the CLOCK_TICK_RATE macro defined in asm-arm/arch-at91rm9200/timex.h as a variable, so that the board can work in different clock frequencies.
Is it possible to do , as many of the macros depend on the CLOCK_TICK_RATE macro.
If it is possible please tell me how to go about.

If it is defined as a macro then the macros value can be re-assigned when the code is compiled. I don't know if this would work for a system library unless you where willing to compile the kernel. A little more information would be helpful here.
