    This patch introduces users of the round_jiffies() function in the
    networking code.
    
    These timers all were of the "about once a second" or "about once
    every X seconds" variety and several showed up in the "what wakes the
    cpu up" profiles that the tickless patches provide.  Some timers are
    highly dynamic based on network load; but even on low activity systems
    they still show up so the rounding is done only in cases of low
    activity, allowing higher frequency timers in the high activity case.
    
    The various hardware watchdogs are an obvious case; they run every 2
    seconds but aren't otherwise specific of exactly when they need to
    run.
