That sounds reasonable, but then I think we should have the full
set of coarse_*_ns() functions, again for consistency:

u64 ktime_get_coarse_ns(void)
u64 ktime_get_coarse_boottime_ns(void)
u64 ktime_get_coarse_real_ns(void)
u64 ktime_get_coarse_clocktai_ns(void)

and document them in Documentation/core-api/timekeeping.rst.

We seem to also be lacking the basic ktime_get_coarse(), which
seems like a major omission.
Both ktime_get_coarse_ns and ktime_get_coarse can be wrappers
around ktime_get_coarse_ts64() then, while the others would
use ktime_get_coarse_with_offset().
