Subject[PATCH 17/24] sched: Update rq clock before idle balancing
Date
idle_balance() is called from schedule() right before we schedule the
idle task. It needs to record the idle timestamp at that time and for
this the rq clock must be accurate. If the CPU is running tickless
we need to update the rq clock manually.
