[PATCH] ppc64: fix time syscall

ppc64 has its own version of sys_time. It looks pretty scary, touching
a whole bunch of variables without any locking or memory ordering.

In fact, a recent bugreport has shown it can actually go backwards. Time
to remove it and just use the generic sys_time, which is implemented on
top of do_gettimeofday.
