Stuff should just use:
clock_gettime(CLOCK_BOOTTIME, &ts);

to get the time in better resolution, and with suspend time taken into account?

As a general note, the kmsg/printk() time in the raw kernel log is the
time of the CPU it runs on, especially during early init this time
might not be in sync across CPUs and stuff jumps event in the very
same stream on events from the kernel itself:
