Subject: [RFC IPROUTE 00/08]: Time cleanups + nano-second clock resolution support

This patchset consists of four parts:

- minor TBF time conversion fix

- consolidation of time calculations: consolidate commonly used expressions
  with the goal of making it easier to audit for integer overflows when
  increasing the internally used clock resolution.
- support for detecting the clock resolution used by the kernel and converting
  time values as necessary.

- finally, increase the internally used clock resolution to nano-seconds

These patches have been tested (well, TBF and HFSC) with both old kernels
and patched kernels using nano-second resolution.
