net: remove deprecated syststamp timestamp
The SO_TIMESTAMPING API defines three types of timestamps: software, hardware in raw format (hwtstamp) and hardware converted to system format (syststamp). The last has been deprecated in favor of combining hwtstamp with a PTP clock driver. There are no active users in the kernel. The option was device driver dependent. If set, but without hardware support, the correct behavior is to return zero in the relevant field in the SCM_TIMESTAMPING ancillary message. Without device drivers implementing the option, this field is effectively always zero. Remove the internal plumbing to dissuage new drivers from implementing the feature. Keep the SOF_TIMESTAMPING_SYS_HARDWARE flag, however, to avoid breaking existing applications that request the timestamp. Signed-off-by: Willem de Bruijn <willemb@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
