Just a general code design observation: the way how the global
'timekeeper' structure is accessed is rather ugly.

The standard method is to pass it in to timekeeping_get_ns()
(and other methods) as a parameter, with the highest level
taking the address via &timekeeping.

That will also make the code shorter and more obvious: the
familar tk->cycle_last pattern instead of the current mixed uses
of timekeeping.cycle_last and tk->cycle_last.

There's many similar patterns throughout this code, they need to
be fixed as well.
