Subject[PATCH] : Optimizes timespec_trunc()
The first thing done by timespec_trunc() is :

if (gran <= jiffies_to_usecs(1) * 1000)

This should really be a test against a constant known at compile time.

Alas, it isnt. jiffies_to_usec() was unilined so C compiler emits a function
call and a multiply to compute : a CONSTANT.

mov $0x1,%edi
mov %rbx,0xffffffffffffffe8(%rbp)
mov %r12,0xfffffffffffffff0(%rbp)
mov %edx,%ebx
mov %rsi,0xffffffffffffffc8(%rbp)
mov %rsi,%r12
callq ffffffff80232010 <jiffies_to_usecs>
imul $0x3e8,%eax,%eax
cmp %ebx,%eax

This patch reorders kernel/time.c a bit so that jiffies_to_usecs() is defined
before timespec_trunc() so that compiler now generates :

cmp $0x3d0900,%edx (HZ=250 on my machine)

This gives a better code (timespec_trunc() becoming a leaf function), and
shorter kernel size as well.
