[PATCH] Time: Let user request precision from current_tick_length()



Change the current_tick_length() function so it takes an argument which
specifies how much precision to return in shifted nanoseconds.  This provides
a simple way to convert between NTPs internal nanoseconds shifted by
(SHIFT_SCALE - 10) to other shifted nanosecond units that are used by the
clocksource abstraction.
