[RFC PATCH v4 08/11] lib: vdso: allow fixed clock mode

On arches like POWERPC, the clock is always the timebase, it
cannot be changed on the fly and it is always VDSO capable.

Therefore, give arches the opportunity to redefine the way
clock_mode is checked by moving the check into an overridable
__arch_vdso_capable() macro.
