ring-buffer: reset timestamps when ring buffer is reset
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 21 Jan 2009 23:45:57 +0000 (18:45 -0500)]
Impact: fix bad times of recent resets

The ring buffer needs to reset its timestamps when reseting of the
buffer, otherwise the timestamps are stale and might be used to
calculate times in the buffer causing funny timestamps to appear.
