Basically, this problem exists whenever timeconst.h
is necessary.

kernel/Makefile has code to create it in kernel/
and kernel/time.c is the only file that uses it.

That code will need to be removed and newly written
somewhere so that timeconst.h could be created as
include/linux/timeconst.h before any other compilation
so that jiffies.h can #include it.

I believe it should be akin to how version.h or
elfconfig.h is created.

Someone with stronger Makefile foo could probably do
it quicker than I could.
