parentsched/x86: Remove unnecessary TBM3 check to update topology (diff)
sched/clock: Fix hotplug crash
Mike reported that he could trigger the WARN_ON_ONCE() in set_sched_clock_stable() using hotplug. This exposed a fundamental problem with the interface, we should never mark the TSC stable if we ever find it to be unstable. Therefore set_sched_clock_stable() is a broken interface. The reason it existed is that not having it is a pain, it means all relevant architecture code needs to call clear_sched_clock_stable() where appropriate. Of the three architectures that select HAVE_UNSTABLE_SCHED_CLOCK ia64 and parisc are trivial in that they never called set_sched_clock_stable(), so add an unconditional call to clear_sched_clock_stable() to them. For x86 the story is a lot more involved, and what this patch tries to do is ensure we preserve the status quo. So even is Cyrix or Transmeta have usable TSC they never called set_sched_clock_stable() so they now get an explicit mark unstable.
