[PATCH v5 1/3] uinput: Use monotonic times for uinput timestamps.

From: Deepa Dinamani
Date: Mon Dec 18 2017 - 00:19:35 EST

struct timeval which is part of struct input_event to
maintain the event times is not y2038 safe.

Real time timestamps are also not ideal for input_event
as this time can go backwards as noted in the patch
a80b83b7b8 by John Stultz.

The patch switches the timestamps to use monotonic time
from realtime time. This is assuming no one is using
absolute times from these timestamps.

The structure to maintain input events will be changed
in a different patch.
