Subject[RFC][patch 03/12] cleanup clocksource selection
From: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>

Sorting the list of clocksources according to their rating is not
necessary as the clocksource selection is not performance critical.
Simplify clocksource_register and sysfs_override_clocksource,
remove clocksource_enqueue and let clocksource_select do the job.
The check in clocksource_register for double registration of the
same clocksource is removed without replacement.

To find the initial clocksource a new weak function in jiffies.c is
defined that returns the jiffies clocksource. The architecture code
can then override the weak function with a more suitable clocksource,
e.g. the TOD clock on s390.
