Subject[PATCH v10 3/7] x86/time: read_boot_clock64() implementation
Date
read_boot_clock64() returns time of when system was started. Now, that
early boot clock is going to be available on x86 it is possible to
implement x86 specific version of read_boot_clock64() that takes advantage
of this new feature.
