Subject[patch 10/11] x86/vdso: Move cycle_last handling into the caller
Dereferencing gtod->cycle_last all over the place and foing the cycles <
last comparison in the vclock read functions generates horrible code. Doing
it at the call site is much better and gains a few cycles both for TSC and
pvclock.

Caveat: This adds the comparison to the hyperv vclock as well, but I have
no way to test that.
