See for a trace excerpt below.

Nah, we don't set sched_clock_stable on AMD.

let's take this one for example

now: 511343524554 is the TSC on core 23
gtod: 511500058415 tick_gtod we just updated with the delta of now and scd->tick_raw. Btw, delta is > 0 so we're incrementing fine.
old_clock: 511500072734 what we returned on the previous sched_clock_cpu() above at tstamp 511.343381
clock: 511500218644 is what we actually return


<...>-102 [023] 511.343528: sched_clock_cpu: clock: 511500218644
<idle>-0 [000] 511.343542: sched_clock_local: now: 511343540484, gtod: 511500210072, delta: 24574, old_clock: 511500215414, clock: 511500234646


now, on cpu0 we've advanced in the meantime with now=511343540484 (btw,
the now TSC values are almost the same as the ftrace timestamps, the
last being taken only a couple of µs later) and so on ...

So, I don't see anything unusual but I could very well be missing
something. Btw, this trace is without your change to ttwu_queue().

I'll do the same exercise on another F10h system once I get it free to
see whether we see the same monotonicity there too.

Let me know if you want something else traced or the trace tweaked.
