Subject[patch 10/46] Simplify the registration of clocksources
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

Enqueue clocksources in rating order to make selection of the
clocksource easier. Also check the match with an user override
at enqueue time.

Preparatory patch for the generic clocksource verification.
