// Implement TimeStamp::Now() with mach_absolute_time
//
// The "tick" unit for mach_absolute_time is defined using mach_timebase_info() which
// gives a conversion ratio to nanoseconds. For more information see Apple's QA1398.
//
// This code is inspired by Chromium's time_mac.cc. The biggest
// differences are that we explicitly initialize using
// TimeStamp::Initialize() instead of lazily in Now() and that
// we store the time value in ticks and convert when needed instead
// of storing the time value in nanoseconds.
