    Subject[PATCH 000/003] Remove getnstimestamp()
    	This series removes the getnstimestamp() function from kernel/time.c in
    favor of kernel/hrtimer.c's ktime_get_ts() function which currently does
    exactly the same thing: retrieves a high-resolution (ns) timespec
    structure and performs the wall_to_monotonic adjustment.

    As Jay Lan suggested I was going to replace calls to getnstimestamp()
    with do_posix_clock_monotonic_gettime() but the hrtimer patches switched
    that to a macro. ktime_get_ts() is shorter and avoids unnecessary
    association with posix timers (though it does not emphasize monotonicity
    or resolution).

    The series:

    001/003 export-ktime_get_ts.patch
    Exports ktime_get_ts()

    002/003 proc-events-use-ktime-for-timestamp.patch
    Switches the only user of getnstimestamp() to ktime_get_ts()

    003/003 rm-getnstimestamp.patch
    Remove getnstimestamp() from kernel/time.c
