cfs_time_seconds() converts seconds to jiffies.
Unfortunately the name might suggest it returns seconds, rather than consumes them, so it is worth while doing an occasion audit to make sure it isn't being misused.
At time of writing there is one place (in delayed_msg_check) where it is used but not needed (we have seconds and want seconds), and two places (ptl_recover_import and mgc_process_log) where the returned value is stored in a variable called "sec". The variable is used correctly as jiffies, but the name is confusing.
These irregularities should be fixed.
