SubjectRe: [PATCH 12/23] clocksource: add clocksource_get_clock()

this one (and the dependent APIs utilizations) look a step in the right
direction to me, but they are not fully consequent and thus a bit
confusing at the moment:

- the current_clocksource is now something that is conceptually related
to timekeeping - while it still resides in the clocksource domain.

- if we do this split there should be a separate sysfs hierarchy for
timekeeping, separate of clocksource

- you use struct sys_device clocksource_sys_device from clocksource.c in
timekeeping.c, which is inconsistent as well.

so these bits need more work.
