Subject[PATCH 02/12] clocksource: rating sorted list
Converts the original plain list into a sorted list based on the clock rating.
Later in my tree this allows some of the variables to be dropped since the
highest rated clock is always at the front of the list. This also does some
other nice things like allow the sysfs files to print the clocks in a more
interesting order. It's forward looking.
