sched clock: couple local and remote clocks
When taking the time of a remote CPU, use the opportunity to couple (sync) the clocks to each other. (in a monotonic way) Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de>
