That looks almost too small.

If this were to allow us to basically unify BOOTTIME/MONOTONIC, that
would be lovely.

Should we just try it, with the understanding that we'll quite
possibly have to just revert?

Assuming this works, what would the "phase two" patch that actually
unifies the two (as opposed to make them have the same value) look

Is that just basically just removing the dozen or so "offst_boot"
uses, or are there other possible simplifications?
