I've pushed it out now to

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git timers/vdso

The generic VDSO library has the support for RAW already with that separate

Feel free to experiment with moving mult/shift again. Maybe you find a way
to mitigate the effects and make it all magically faster. :)

Thanks,
