rev 2869 : 7117303: VM uses non-monotonic time source and complains that it is non-monotonic
Summary: Replaces calls to os::javaTimeMillis(), which does not guarantee montonicity, in GC code to os::javaTimeNanos() with a suitable conversion factor. os::javaTimeNanos() mostly guarantees montonicity depending on the underlying OS implementation and, as a result, a better alternative. Changes in OS files are to make use of the newly defined constants in globalDefinitions.hpp.
