ia64: Update fsyscall gettime to use modern vsyscall_update
John Stultz provided the outline for this patch back in May 2014 here: http://patches.linaro.org/patch/30501/ but I let this sit on the shelf for too long and in the intervening years almost every field in "struct timekeeper" was changed. So this is almost completely different from his original. Though the key change in arch/ia64/kernel/fsys.S remains the same. The core logic change with the updated vsyscall method is that we preserve the base nanosecond value in shifted nanoseconds, which allows us to avoid truncating and rounding up to the next nanosecond every tick to avoid inconsistencies. Thus the logic moved from nsec = ((cycle_delta * mult)>>shift) + base_nsec; to nsec = ((cycle_delta * mult) + base_snsec) >> shift; Cc: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org> Cc: linux-ia64@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>
