In fact we were already providing a non-steady steady_clock in the
default configuration, we just define it as a typedef for
system_clock, so we can export steady_clock::now() as an alias for
system_clock::now() when the two clocks are the same type.  When
they're not the same type there will be a real symbol present in the
