Subject: [PATCH 1/2] scripts: show_delta: add time stamp rounding option

An additional feature for show_delta: -r <round_us>
With this option the delta time stamps are rounded to the
closest microsecond specified by the -r option.

Rationale: Make it easier to diff kernel logs when looking for
timing issues (less irrelevant diffs detected by a diff tool).
