New Revision: 218429

  MFC r218180 (= fixed r218169):
  For the ZFS kernel module, change the type of clock_t to int64_t.
  The clock_t type in OpenSolaris is long (int64_t on amd64).
  On FreeBSD clock_t is int32_t. The clock_t type is used in several places
  in the ZFS code to store system uptime in milliseconds ("seconds * hz").
  With hz=1000 we have a 32-bit integer overflow in 24 days, 20 hours,
  31 minutes and 23.648 seconds. This has a user reported negative impact
  on l2arc_feed_thread() and may cause unexpected results from other functions
  using clock_t.
