Subject: sched: fix rq->clock warps on frequency changes
From: Guillaume Chazarain <guichaz@yahoo.fr>
sched: fix rq->clock warps on frequency changes

Fix 2bacec8c318ca0418c0ee9ac662ee44207765dd4
(sched: touch softlockup watchdog after idling) that reintroduced warps
on frequency changes. touch_softlockup_watchdog() calls __update_rq_clock
that checks rq->clock for warps, so call it after adjusting rq->clock.
