[PATCH 2/5] libstdc++ futex: Use FUTEX_CLOCK_REALTIME for wait


The futex system call supports waiting for an absolute time if
FUTEX_WAIT_BITSET is used rather than FUTEX_WAIT. Doing so provides two
benefits:

1. The call to gettimeofday is not required in order to calculate a
   relative timeout.

2. If someone changes the system clock during the wait then the futex
   timeout will correctly expire earlier or later. Currently that only
   happens if the clock is changed prior to the call to gettimeofday.

According to futex(2), support for FUTEX_CLOCK_REALTIME was added in the
v2.6.28 Linux kernel and FUTEX_WAIT_BITSET was added in v2.6.25. There is
no attempt to detect the kernel version and fall back to the previous
method.
