sched: Remove rq->clock coupling from set_task_cpu()

set_task_cpu() should be rq invariant and only touch task state, it
currently fails to do so, which opens up a few races, since not all
callers hold both rq->locks.

Remove the relyance on rq->clock, as any site calling set_task_cpu()
should also do a remote clock update, which should ensure the observed
time between these two cpus is monotonic, as per
kernel/sched_clock.c:sched_clock_remote().

Therefore we can simply remove the clock_offset bits and be happy.
