    More non retesting.

    Hmm indeed. I actually had it correct at some point (i remember
    fixing 64bit compile errors in sched-clock ;-). I guess the Makefile hunk
    accidentially dropped out during some later merging and this didn't get
    noticed due to the weak attribute.

    That also explains the issue reported by Peter earlier I guess.
