> This is a sub-issue of [HBase-14070|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14070].
This JIRA is a small step towards completely adding Hybrid Logical Clocks(HLC) to HBase. The
main idea of HLC is described in [HBase-14070|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14070]
along with the motivation of adding it to HBase. 
> What is this patch/issue about ?
> This issue attempts to add a timestamp class to hbase-common and timestamp type to HTable.

> This is a part of the attempt to get HLC into HBase. This patch does not interfere with
the current working of HBase.
> Why Timestamp Class ?
> Timestamp class can be as an abstraction to represent time in Hbase in 64 bits. 
> It is just used for manipulating with the 64 bits of the timestamp and is not concerned
about the actual time.
> There are three types of timestamps. System time, Custom and HLC. Each one of it has
methods to manipulate the 64 bits of timestamp. 
> HTable changes: Added a timestamp type property to HTable. This will help HBase exist
in conjunction with old type of timestamp and also the HLC which will be introduced. The default
is set to custom timestamp(current way of usage of timestamp). default unset timestamp is
also custom timestamp as it should be so. The default timestamp will be changed to HLC when
HLC feature is introduced completely in HBase.
> Suggestions are welcome. 
> [~enis] - The timestamp class is the one written by you, I have not made any changes.
I just changed the default timestamp of the table to Custom.
