Summary

HPTS drives both rack and bbr, and yet there have been many complaints
about performance. This bit of work restructures hpts to help reduce CPU
overhead. It does this by now instead of relying on the timer/callout to
drive it instead use user return from a system call as well as lro flushes
to drive hpts. The timer becomes a backstop that dynamically adjusts
based on how "late" we are.
