#7041: time_point.hpp depends on Boost.System

 The file boost/chrono/time_point.hpp #includes
 <boost/chrono/detail/system.hpp>, and it doesn't appear to need it. This
 creates an unnecessary dependency on Boost.System, even though no clock
 provided by Boost.Chrono is used.

 Proposed solution:
 remove #include <boost/chrono/detail/system.hpp> from

 Suppose I want to create my own clock class, and in it among other things
 I would like to typedef a time_point<...>.

 struct MyClock
     typedef int64_t rep;
     typedef boost::milli period;
     typedef boost::chrono::duration<rep,period> duration;
     typedef boost::chrono::time_point<MyClock,duration> time_point;
     static bool const is_steady = false;
     static time_point now();

 Now, for this to work it is necessary to #include
 <boost/chrono/time_point.hpp>. Including it causes a dependency on
