Subject[patch 14/40] IA64: Turn on CONFIG_HAVE_UNSTABLE_CLOCK
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>

commit 0773a6cf673316440999752e23f8c3d4f85e48b9 upstream.

sched_clock() on ia64 is based on ar.itc, so is never
completely synchronized between cpus. On some platforms
(e.g. certain models of SGI Altix) it may be running at
radically different frequencies.

Based on a patch from Dimitri Sivanich which set this
just for SN2 && GENERIC kernels ... it is needed for
all ia64 machines.
