Subject: [RFC NET_SCHED 00/03]: ktime + nano-second clock resolution for packet schedulers

These patches convert the GETTIMEOFDAY packet scheduler clock source to
ktime (based on Stephen's patch) and add support for using nano-second
clock resolution. I chose a scalar time representation within the packet
schedulers instead of ktime_t since it minimizes the ktime_to_ns() calls
in most cases, it allows to clean up pkt_sched.h quite a bit and HFSC
needs it anyway.

Unlike my previous attempt at this, these patches keep old iproute
versions working with nano-second resolution with the exception of HFSC.
I'm not sure what to do about HFSC yet, so just RFC for now.
