Subject[RFC] ratelimit: fix time interval by setting right start time
Date
rs->begin should be initialized to the current jiffies if the begin was 0.
Even when the time interval passes, the current resetting logic sets the begin
back to 0. So next interval starts from the next call rather than from the
current resetting call. This incurrs improper suppression.

For example:
B will be suppressed althouth 3 seconds passed.
DEFINE_RATELIMIT_STATE(limit, HZ, 1);
__ratelimit(&limit); /* A */
sleep(3);
__ratelimit(&limit); /* B */
