Subject[PATCH] arch/tile: fix __ndelay etc to work better
The current implementations of __ndelay and __udelay call a hypervisor
service to delay, but the hypervisor service isn't actually implemented
very well, and the consensus is that Linux should handle figuring this
out natively and not use a hypervisor service.

By converting nanoseconds to cycles, and then spinning until the
cycle counter reaches the desired cycle, we get several benefits:
first, we are sensitive to the actual clock speed; second, we use
less power by issuing a slow SPR read once every six cycles while
we delay; and third, we properly handle the case of an interrupt by
exiting at the target time rather than after some number of cycles.
