Subject[PATCH v2 15/20] arm64: Introduce asm/common/arch_timer.h
Date
The vDSO library should only include the necessary headers required for
a userspace library (UAPI and a minimal set of kernel headers). To make
this possible it is necessary to isolate from the kernel headers the
common parts that are strictly necessary to build the library.

Introduce asm/common/arch_timer.h to contain all the arm64 specific
code. This allows to replace the second isb() in __arch_get_hw_counter()
with a fake dependent stack read of the counter which improves the vdso
library peformances of ~4.5%. Below the results of vdsotest [1] ran for
100 iterations.

Before the patch:
=================
clock-gettime-monotonic: syscall: 771 nsec/call
clock-gettime-monotonic: libc: 130 nsec/call
clock-gettime-monotonic: vdso: 111 nsec/call
...
clock-gettime-realtime: syscall: 762 nsec/call
clock-gettime-realtime: libc: 130 nsec/call
clock-gettime-realtime: vdso: 111 nsec/call

After the patch:
================
clock-gettime-monotonic: syscall: 792 nsec/call
clock-gettime-monotonic: libc: 124 nsec/call
clock-gettime-monotonic: vdso: 106 nsec/call
...
clock-gettime-realtime: syscall: 776 nsec/call
clock-gettime-realtime: libc: 124 nsec/call
clock-gettime-realtime: vdso: 106 nsec/call
