But where would you set ktime_sec? My first thought was tk_update_ktime_data(),
but would then either be slightly wrong because it doesn't take the current
xtime_nsec + tk->wall_to_monotonic.tv_nsec into account, if we do

diff --git a/kernel/time/timekeeping.c b/kernel/time/timekeeping.c
index ec1791fae965..d72a456c6bd3 100644

 	 */
-	nsec = (s64)(tk->xtime_sec + tk->wall_to_monotonic.tv_sec);

 	nsec += tk->wall_to_monotonic.tv_nsec;
 	tk->tkr.base_mono = ns_to_ktime(nsec);
 

or we'd have to add an expensive timekeeping_get_ns() call:
