Enables FreeSWITCH to use system time.


After discussion withe the engineers, I've come to understand that the "enable-use-system-time" parameter is a work around for older machines with broken clock api's.

It's not recommended to use this setting in modern machines, as it's likely to break timing and other things... more notably when it comes to CDR's...
It's preferred to use monotonic timing like as NTP/UTC...

I hear it can be useful to use non-monotonic timing for debugging weird issues occasionally, but I dont have specifics how/when that may be used.
Using montonic timing is exactly how you address clock shift issues.

enable-use-system-time is something that may get removed from source code at some point, we've just not taken the time to remove it yet...
