Subject[patch 39/57] sched: disable the hrtick for now

2.6.27-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
commit 0c4b83da58ec2e96ce9c44c211d6eac5f9dae478 upstream

sched: disable the hrtick for now

David Miller reported that hrtick update overhead has tripled the
wakeup overhead on Sparc64.

That is too much - disable the HRTICK feature for now by default,
until a faster implementation is found.
