Sorry, could you clarify a bit more? The above sounds like there are two 
issues, but you only sent one patch.

I'm also not sure how to proceed with the patch you sent, since it 
collides with the patch that moves sched_clock to be generic.

Could you refactor the change on-top of git branch I sent to Thomas? 
Otherwise I'll have to withdraw the pull request, and we'll probably 
miss 3.11 for the generic sched_clock change.
