actually, i designed the CFS code assuming a per-CPU TSC (with no global
synchronization), not assuming any globally sync TSC. In fact i wrote it
on such systems: a CoreDuo2 box that has stops the TSC in C3 and the
different cores have wildly different TSC values and a dual-core
Athlon64 that quickly drifts its TSC. So i'll keep the sched_clock()
change for now.

yeah - i'll fix that too if someone doesnt beat me at it.
