Your code seems correct, but it does nothing to the actual timer
hardware to tell it to generate interrupts.  The eCos interrupt
facility only provides guidance for how to handle the interrupt
condition itself - it does not imply that by enabling the interrupt
some how (via magic) the underlying device gets programmed to actually
make the interrupt happen.

In this case, look at the system timer routines (hal_clock_initialize
in hal/arm/edb7xxx/current/src/edb7xxx_misc.c) to see what might need 
to be done to get interrupts from timer #0.
