The do_fast_gettimeoffset function

The do_fast_gettimeoffset function below (taken from
arch/mips/kernel/time.c) can only be used on 64-bit processors.
I would like to be able to use this on a 32-bit processor. As I'm not
completely sure what this function does, can someone who does please
help me out ?

  * It has to be recalculated once each jiffy.
