Subject[PATCH 1/2] timekeeping: Avoid taking lock in NMI path with CONFIG_DEBUG_TIMEKEEPING
Date
When I added some extra sanity checking in timekeeping_get_ns() under
CONFIG_DEBUG_TIMEKEEPING, I missed that the NMI safe __ktime_get_fast_ns()
method was using timekeeping_get_ns().

Thus the locking added to the debug checks broke the NMI-safety of
__ktime_get_fast_ns().

This patch open-codes the timekeeping_get_ns() logic for
__ktime_get_fast_ns(), so can avoid any deadlocks in NMI.
