n1sdp: fix n1sdp_sensor hang by moving alarm ID to config file

Merged Darryl Green requested to merge github/fork/manojkumar-arm/n1sdp/n1sdp-sensor-fix into master

Created by: manojkumar-arm

n1sdp_sensor module uses timer alarm API for periodically measuring the sensor values. So the module binds to timer module in the bind stage using FWK_ID_SUB_ELEMENT call. So when a library is built, the value calculated by the macro will be taken based on that build environment.

However, in later stage if modules added/removed in firmware.mk, the position of the timer module will be changed and since a library module will not be built in normal build phase, it is unaware of the change in position and hence passes wrong element id to timer during bind. This makes the code to fail.

As a workaround, this patch moves the id calculation to config file as a module configuration data so that the value is generated in every build. The library will read the data passed by the config file and not uses fixed value.
