Description

The paging routines in uts/common/os/vm_pageout.c presently make use of a mixture of ddi_get_lbolt(9F) and gethrtime(9F) for time keeping. A lot of this code has existed for a long time, but the algorithm is relatively simple and there doesn't appear to be a reason not to just deal in nanosecond intervals throughout the entire mechanism.
