Subject: [PATCH v3 02/10] trace2: refactor setting process starting time
Date: Thu, 11 Apr 2019 08:18:39 -0700 (PDT)
Message-ID: <3dbcfc6a8dce98dfec502c4b2a090450c9f9c66b.1554995916.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.169.v3.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Jeff Hostetler <jeffhost@microsoft.com>

Create trace2_initialize_clock() and call from main() to capture
process start time in isolation and before other sub-systems are
ready.
