Ok, I have edited all the changelogs accordingly (and also flipped around the
'clock MONOTONIC' language to the more readable 'the MONOTONIC clock' variant),
the resulting titles are (in order):

72199320d49d: timekeeping: Add the new CLOCK_MONOTONIC_ACTIVE clock
d6ed449afdb3: timekeeping: Make the MONOTONIC clock behave like the BOOTTIME clock
f2d6fdbfd238: Input: Evdev - unify MONOTONIC and BOOTTIME clock behavior
d6c7270e913d: timekeeping: Remove boot time specific code
7250a4047aa6: posix-timers: Unify MONOTONIC and BOOTTIME clock behavior
127bfa5f4342: hrtimer: Unify MONOTONIC and BOOTTIME clock behavior
92af4dcb4e1c: tracing: Unify the "boot" and "mono" tracing clocks

I'll push these out after testing.
