timekeeping: Fix __ktime_get_fast_ns() regression

commit 58bfea9532552d422bde7afa207e1a0f08dffa7d upstream.

In commit 27727df2 ("Avoid taking lock in NMI path with
CONFIG_DEBUG_TIMEKEEPING"), I changed the logic to open-code
the timekeeping_get_ns() function, but I forgot to include
the unit conversion from cycles to nanoseconds, breaking the
function's output, which impacts users like perf.

This results in bogus perf timestamps like:

Add the proper use of timekeeping_delta_to_ns() to convert
the cycle delta to nanoseconds as needed.

Thanks to Brendan and Alexei for finding this quickly after
the v4.8 release. Unfortunately the problematic commit has
landed in some -stable trees so they'll need this fix as
well.

Many apologies for this mistake. I'll be looking to add a
perf-clock sanity test to the kselftest timers tests soon.
