This patch causes a regression when running a qemu emulation with
arm:integratorcp.

A complete boot log is available at
http://kerneltests.org/builders/qemu-arm-next/builds/979/steps/qemubuildcommand/logs/stdio

Unfortunately, reverting the patch results in conflicts, so I am unable
to confirm that it is the only culprit.

From the context and from looking into the patch, it appears that this
can happen in any system if CONFIG_HAVE_UNSTABLE_SCHED_CLOCK is not
enabled.

Bisect log is attached.
