Pull trace fix from Steven Rostedt:
 "Tony Luck found that using the "uptime" trace clock that uses jiffies
  as a counter was converted to nanoseconds (silly), and after 1 hour 11
  minutes and 34 seconds, this monotonic clock would wrap, causing havoc
  with the tracing system and making the clock useless.

  He converted that clock to use jiffies_64 and made it into a counter
  instead of nanosecond conversions, and displayed the clock with the
  straight jiffy count, which works much better than it did in the past"
