It is possible to fallback to universal_time() when no monotonic timer
is available. In this case the users of microsec_clock can safely use
monotonic_time() on any platform.
Another approach is to remove monotonic_time() away from microsec_clock
if no monotonic timer is available. In this case the users'll have to
handle this situation. Most of the time they'll end up using
