From: John Stultz on
This patchset cleans up all the direct accesses to xtime
and wall_to_monotonic, allowing them to be made static
so we can do further cleanup and rework of the timekeeping

This is 2.6.36 (or later) material. But I wanted to get
the ball rolling.

Any feedback/testing would be greatly appreciated!
