This all seems to assume the TSC is the current clocksource, which it
may not be if the user has overridden it.

If instead there were a counter_to_rawmono64() which took the counter
value and maybe the name of the clocksource (if the strncmp is
affordable for your use), it might be easier for the core to provide
an error if the current timekeeping clocksource isn't the one the
counter value is based on. This would also allow the tsc_to_*()
midlayers to be dropped (since they don't seem to do much).

thanks
