Add meta_compositor_monotonic_time_to_server_time()

Add a function to convert from g_get_monotonic_time() to a
"high-resolution server timestamp" with microsecond precision.
These timestamps will be used when communicating frame timing
information to the client.

/**

* @monotonic_time: time in the units of g_get_monotonic_time()
*
* _NET_WM_FRAME_DRAWN and _NET_WM_FRAME_TIMINGS messages represent time
* as a "high resolution server time" - this is the server time interpolated
* to microsecond resolution. The advantage of this time representation
* is that if X server is running on the same computer as a client, and
* the Xserver uses 'clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, ...)' for the server
* time, the client can detect this, and all such clients will share a
* a time representation with high accuracy. If there is not a common
* time source, then the time synchronization will be less accurate.
