[patch] hp-timing for powerpc64


attached macro for supporting hp-timing for powerpc64.

I could also provide one for powerpc32, but there won't be real HP_TIMING_ACCUM.

/* There are no generic definitions for the times.  We could write something
   using the `gettimeofday' system call where available but the overhead of
   the system call might be too high.

   In case a platform supports timers in the hardware the following macros
   and types must be defined:

   - HP_TIMING_AVAIL: test for availability.

   - HP_TIMING_INLINE: this macro is non-zero if the functionality is not
     implemented using function calls but instead uses some inlined code
     which might simply consist of a few assembler instructions.  We have to
     know this since we might want to use the macros here in places where we
     cannot make function calls.

   - hp_timing_t: This is the type for variables used to store the time

   - HP_TIMING_ZERO: clear `hp_timing_t' object.

   - HP_TIMING_NOW: place timestamp for current time in variable given as

   - HP_TIMING_DIFF_INIT: do whatever is necessary to be able to use the
     HP_TIMING_DIFF macro.

   - HP_TIMING_DIFF: compute difference between two times and store it
     in a third.  Source and destination might overlap.

   - HP_TIMING_ACCUM: add time difference to another variable.  This might
     be a bit more complicated to implement for some platforms as the
     operation should be thread-safe and 64bit arithmetic on 32bit platforms
     is not.

   - HP_TIMING_ACCUM_NT: this is the variant for situations where we know
     there are no threads involved.

   - HP_TIMING_PRINT: write decimal representation of the timing value into
     the given string.  This operation need not be inline even though
     HP_TIMING_INLINE is specified.
