And there's no way that such a change could ever go into mainline; it
can mean that the timer is registered into the timer subsystem before
the timer subsystem has been initialised.  That's why we postpone that
part to time_init().

(And it has _always_ been intended that this sched_clock() implementation
would be usable by the time setup_arch() completes...)
