    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
