Kewen.Lin via Gcc-patches May 29, 2020, 6:17 a.m.
The user-visible effect of this change is that std::future::wait_for now
uses std::chrono::steady_clock to determine the timeout.  This makes it
immune to changes made to the system clock.  It also means that anyone
using their own clock types with std::future::wait_until will have the
timeout converted to std::chrono::steady_clock rather than
std::chrono::system_clock.

Now that use of both std::chrono::steady_clock and
std::chrono::system_clock are correctly supported for the wait timeout, I
believe that std::chrono::steady_clock is a better choice for the reference
clock that all other clocks are converted to since it is guaranteed to
advance steadily.  The previous behaviour of converting to
std::chrono::system_clock risks timeouts changing dramatically when the
system clock is changed.

	* libstdc++-v3/include/bits/atomic_futex.h:
	(__atomic_futex_unsigned): Change __clock_t typedef to use
	steady_clock so that unknown clocks are synced to it rather than
	system_clock. Change existing __clock_t overloads of
	_M_load_and_text_until_impl and _M_load_when_equal_until to use
	system_clock explicitly. Remove comment about DR 887 since these
	changes address that problem as best as we currently able.
