Subject[PATCH v10 2/7] time: sync read_boot_clock64() with persistent clock
Date
read_boot_clock64() returns a boot start timestamp from epoch. Some arches
may need to access the persistent clock interface in order to calculate the
epoch offset. The resolution of the persistent clock, however, might be
low. Therefore, in order to avoid time discrepancies a new argument 'now'
is added to read_boot_clock64() parameters. Arch may decide to use it
instead of accessing persistent clock again.

Also, change read_boot_clock64() to have __init prototype since it is
accessed only during boot.
