Subject[ 079/135] time: Avoid making adjustments if we havent accumulated anything
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org>

This is a -stable backport of bf2ac312195155511a0f79325515cbb61929898a

If update_wall_time() is called and the current offset isn't large
enough to accumulate, avoid re-calling timekeeping_adjust which may
change the clock freq and can cause 1ns inconsistencies with
CLOCK_REALTIME_COARSE/CLOCK_MONOTONIC_COARSE.
