Goal: avoid programming ced devices too early for large deltas, for
      details, c.f. the description of [21/23].

Previous v6 can be found here:


Your objections [0] to v6 have both been towards
[1/23] ("clocksource: sh_cmt: compute rate before registration again"),
- there was a coding style issue due to the removal of braces at an if
- and I carried the original mult/shift calculation over rather than
  using clockevents_calc_mult_shift() instead.

I fixed the first issue up. However, I did nothing regarding the
second one because I'd not feel very confident about doing this
cleanup: I don't know why the shift value is set the way it is and
thus, I can't tell whether this would break anything. If you still
insist on me doing this, I'd prefer to send a patch separate from this
series such that it could get merged, dropped (or reverted)

This series can be divided into logical subseries as follows:
[1-6/23]   Don't modify ced rate after registrations through mechanisms
           other than clockevents_update_freq().

[7-12/23]  Let all ced devices set their ->*_delta_ticks values and let
           the clockevent core do the rest.

[13/23]    Introduce the CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag

[14-20/23] Fiddle around with the bound checking code in order to
           allow for non-atomic frequency updates from a CPU different
           than where the ced is programmed.

[21-23/23] Actually do the frequency adjustments.

Tested on x86_64 and next-20160916.

Changes to v6:
 Rebased against next-20160916.

 [1/23]  ("clocksource: sh_cmt: compute rate before registration again")
   Do not remove braces at if statement.

Changes to v5:
 [21/23] ("clockevents: initial support for mono to raw time conversion")
   Replace the max_t() in
     adj = max_t(u64, adj, mult_ce_raw / 8);
   by min_t(): mult_ce_raw / 8 actually sets an upper bound on the
   mult adjustments.

 [23/23] ("timekeeping: inform clockevents about freq adjustments")
   Move the clockevents_adjust_all_freqs() invocation from
   timekeeping_apply_adjustment() to timekeeping_freqadjust().
   Reason is given in the patch description.

Changes to v4:
 [1-12/23] Unchanged

 [13/23] ("clockevents: introduce CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag")

 [14/23] ("clockevents: decouple ->max_delta_ns from ->max_delta_ticks")
   New. Solves the overflow problem the former
   [13/22] ("clockevents: check a programmed delta's bounds in terms of cycles")
   from v4 introduced.

   (Note that the former
    [14/22] ("clockevents: clockevents_program_event(): turn clc into unsigned 
    from v4 has been purged.)

 [15/23] ("clockevents: do comparison of delta against minimum in terms of 
   This is the former
   [13/22] ("clockevents: check a programmed delta's bounds in terms of 
   but only for the ->min_delta_* -- the ->max_delta_* are handled by [14/23] 

 [16/23] ("clockevents: clockevents_program_min_delta(): don't set 
   Former [15/22] unchanged.

 [17/23] ("clockevents: use ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted to program minimum 
   Former [16/22]. Trivially fix compilation error with

 [18/22] ("clockevents: min delta increment: calculate min_delta_ns from ticks")
   Former [17/22] unchanged.

 [19/23] ("timer_list: print_tickdevice(): calculate ->min_delta_ns 
   Corresponds to former
   [18/22] ("timer_list: print_tickdevice(): calculate ->*_delta_ns 
   from v4, but only for ->min_delta_ns. The changes required for the display of
   ->max_delta_ns are now being made in [14/23] already.

 [20/23] ("clockevents: purge ->min_delta_ns")
   Corresponds to former
   [19/22] ("clockevents: purge ->min_delta_ns and ->max_delta_ns"),
   but with ->max_delta_ns being kept.

 [21/23] ("clockevents: initial support for mono to raw time conversion")
   Former [20/22] with the following changes:
   - Don't adjust mult for those ced's that have CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST set.
   - Don't meld __clockevents_update_bounds() into __clockevents_adjust_freq()
     anymore: the bounds for those devices having CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST set
     must have got their bounds set as well.
   - In __clockevents_calc_adjust_freq(), make sure that the adjusted mult
     doesn't exceed the original by more than 12.5%. C.f. [14/23].
   - In timekeeping, define timekeeping_get_mono_mult() only for

  [22/23] ("clockevents: make setting of ->mult and ->mult_adjusted atomic")
   Former [12/22], but with the description updated: previously, it said that
   this patch would introduce a new locking dependency. This is not true.

  [23/23] ("timekeeping: inform clockevents about freq adjustments")
    Former [22/22] with the following changes:
    - Don't adjust mult for those ced's that have CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST set.
    - In clockevents_adjust_all_freqs(), reuse the adjusted cached mult only
      if the associated ->shift also matches.
    - Introduce noop clockevents_adjust_all_freqs() in order to fix a
      compilation error with CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS=n.
