Subject[19/24] clocksource: Install completely before selecting
2.6.33-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: john stultz <johnstul@us.ibm.com>

commit e05b2efb82596905ebfe88e8612ee81dec9b6592 upstream.

Christian Hoffmann reported that the command line clocksource override
with acpi_pm timer fails:

Kernel command line: <SNIP> clocksource=acpi_pm
hpet clockevent registered
Switching to clocksource hpet
Override clocksource acpi_pm is not HRT compatible.
Cannot switch while in HRT/NOHZ mode.

The watchdog code is what enables CLOCK_SOURCE_VALID_FOR_HRES, but we
actually end up selecting the clocksource before we enqueue it into
the watchdog list, so that's why we see the warning and fail to switch
to acpi_pm timer as requested. That's particularly bad when we want to
debug timekeeping related problems in early boot.

Put the selection call last.
