[PATCH 1/9] ia64: VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING (accurate cpu time accounting)

From: Hidetoshi Seto <seto.hidetoshi_at_jp.fujitsu.com>

> [1/9] ia64_add_config_virt_cpu_accounting.patch

The VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING option is already implemented s390
and powerpc archs.

By enabling this option, the arch can hook a function named
account_system_vtime() to irq_enter(), irq_exit(), and
head and tail of do_softirq().

This patch just add the Kconfig option to ia64, and enable
to hook ia64 specific account_system_vtime() function,
currently nop as generic one.

Thanks,
H.Seto
