This is mostly a resend of a patch series I sent a little over a month

and get a generic sched_clock layer without having to take the 64 bit
patches. The last three patches add 64 bit support and move the architected
timers on ARM64 and ARM to use it.

Yea, so from the initial look over it, I think I'm happy with queuing the first three patches, although I'd like to get some acks from arm folks on at least the first two, just so no one is surprised with it going through the -tip tree.

It looks like the arm64 bit stuff needs a few more iterations w/ Russell, so I'll not touch those.

We still have a ways to go to consolidate x86 into this (need to handle pv hooks), but it should provide a base to get some of the simpler arches sharing the same infrastructure.

Also I suspect we can maybe further combine this with the kernel/sched/clock.c code, but I think this is a good start for now.
