Subject[RFC][Patch 1/5] nanosecond timestamps and diffs
Add kernel utility functions for
- nanosecond resolution timestamps, adjusted for lost ticks
- interval (diff) between two such timestamps, in nanoseconds, adjusting
for overflow

The timestamp part of this patch is identical to the one proposed by
Matt Helsley (as part of adding timestamps to process event connectors)
