something seems to be off as the Blackfin defconfig now does:
LD .tmp_vmlinux1
kernel/built-in.o: In function `clocksource_forward_now':
kernel/time/timekeeping.c:82: undefined reference to `arch_gettimeoffset'
kernel/built-in.o: In function `getnstimeofday':
kernel/time/timekeeping.c:119: undefined reference to `arch_gettimeoffset'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

most likely because the Blackfin time.c is the old stuff
(non-clocksource) while time-ts.c is the newer stuff (clocksource) and
this change only touches time.c
