Subject: [PATCH] exynos: drm: use monotonic timestamps

The exynos DRM driver uses real-time 'struct timeval' values
for exporting its timestamps to user space. This has multiple
problems:

1. signed seconds overflow in y2038
2. the 'struct timeval' definition is deprecated in the kernel
3. time may jump or go backwards after a 'settimeofday()' syscall
4. other DRM timestamps are in CLOCK_MONOTONIC domain, so they
   can't be compared
5. exporting microseconds requires a division by 1000, which may
   be slow on some architectures.

Ideally timestamps should just use 64-bit nanoseconds instead, but
of course we can't change that now. Instead, this tries to address
the first four points above by using monotonic 'timespec' values.

The downside is that there is a small risk of breaking user space
if that expects the absolute timestamp numbers to relate to the
result of 'gettimeofday()'. Please review the user space driver
before applying this patch to ensure this works.
