timekeeping: Replace read_boot_clock64() with read_persistent_wall_and_boot_offset()

If architecture does not support exact boot time, it is challenging to
estimate boot time without having a reference to the current persistent
clock value. Yet, it cannot read the persistent clock time again, because
this may lead to math discrepancies with the caller of read_boot_clock64()
who have read the persistent clock at a different time.

This is why it is better to provide two values simultaneously: the
persistent clock value, and the boot time.

Replace read_boot_clock64() with:
read_persistent_wall_and_boot_offset(wall_time, boot_offset)

Where wall_time is returned by read_persistent_clock() And boot_offset is
wall_time - boot time, which defaults to 0.
