Allwinner A64 non-monotonic clock


this is nothing new[0], but i tested it to be present here aswell,
while trying to decide whether i should go for pinebook, or not.

workaround for this should land in linux-next today, if not already,
just in case someone here does care.

ps. you can use this to verify it is indeed broken atm. as is,
and on my pine64 board this does take less than 10mins to trigger.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>

ts_abort(struct timespec *ts0, struct timespec *ts1)
	    ts0->tv_sec, ts0->tv_nsec,
	    ts1->tv_sec, ts1->tv_nsec);

main(int argc, char *argv[])
	struct timespec ts0, ts1;

	clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, &ts0);
	for(;;) {
		clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, &ts1);

		if ((ts0.tv_sec < ts1.tv_sec) ||
		    ((ts0.tv_sec == ts1.tv_sec) &&
		     (ts0.tv_nsec < ts1.tv_nsec))) {
			ts0.tv_sec  = ts1.tv_sec;
			ts0.tv_nsec = ts1.tv_nsec;
		} else
			ts_abort(&ts0, &ts1);
