    Fix jiffies.h comment
    jiffies.h includes a comment informing that jiffies_64 must be read with the
    assistance of the xtime_lock seqlock. The comment text, however, calls
    jiffies_64 "not volatile", which should probably read "not atomic".

- * The 64-bit value is not volatile - you MUST NOT read it
+ * The 64-bit value is not atomic - you MUST NOT read it
  * without sampling the sequence number in xtime_lock.
  * get_jiffies_64() will do this for you as appropriate.
