[PATCH 4/5] libstdc++ atomic_futex: Use std::chrono::steady_clock as reference clock


The user-visible effect of this change is that std::future::wait_for now
uses std::chrono::steady_clock to determine the timeout. This makes it
immune to changes made to the system clock. It also means that anyone using
their own clock types with std::future::wait_until will have the timeout
converted to std::chrono::steady_clock rather than
std::chrono::system_clock.

Now that use of both std::chrono::steady_clock and
std::chrono::system_clock are correctly supported for the wait timeout, I
believe that std::chrono::steady_clock is a better choice for the reference
clock that all other clocks are converted to since it is guaranteed to
advance steadily. The previous behaviour of converting to
std::chrono::system_clock risks timeouts changing dramatically when the
system clock is changed.
