unsigned long long default_sched_clock(void)
return (unsigned long long)jiffies * (1000000000 / HZ);

in kernel/sched.c and

#define sched_clock default_sched_clock

in include/asm-alpha/system.h

FWIW, the former should've been done from the very beginning and sched_clock
should've been made a weak alias for default_sched_clock. That would avoid
the breakage of platforms original patch didn't update.

BTW, how about adding weak_alias(type, name, args, default_variant) to
compiler.h? For most platforms it would be

#define weak_alias(type, name, args, default_variant) \
type name args __attribute__((weak, alias(#default_variant)));

Note that we already have something similar - cond_syscall(name) would
become weak_alias(asmlinkage long, name, (void), sys_ni_syscall) and
platform-specific stuff could be taken from current definitions of this
