/*
 * tracing clocks
 *
 *  Copyright (C) 2009 Red Hat, Inc., Ingo Molnar <mingo@redhat.com>
 *
 * Implements 3 trace clock variants, with differing scalability/precision
 * tradeoffs:
 *
 *  -   local: CPU-local trace clock
 *  -  medium: scalable global clock with some jitter
 *  -  global: globally monotonic, serialized clock
 *
 * Tracer plugins will chose a default from these clocks.
