sched: fix process time monotonicity

Spencer reported a problem where utime and stime were going negative despite
the fixes in commit b27f03d4bdc145a09fb7b0c0e004b29f1ee555fa. The suspected
reason for the problem is that signal_struct maintains it's own utime and
stime (of exited tasks), these are not updated using the new task_utime()
routine, hence sig->utime can go backwards and cause the same problem
to occur (sig->utime, adds tsk->utime and not task_utime()). This patch
fixes the problem

sched_clock: fix NOHZ interaction

If HLT stops the TSC, we'll fail to account idle time, thereby inflating the
actual process times. Fix this by re-calibrating the clock against GTOD when
leaving nohz mode.
