Subject[PATCH] sched: disable hrtick implementation
The hrtick implementation in 2.6.25 and .26 has been known to cause boot
problems with at least Intel GMA cards. see:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15602
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10892

A full fix to hrtick went into 2.6.27
(31656519e132f6612584815f128c83976a9aaaef),
but that fix is too intrusive to backport. Henceforth, we default to
disable hrtick.
