[PATCH v13 15/18] x86/tsc: use tsc early




get timestamps and high resultion clock available to us as early as
possible.

native_sched_clock() outputs time based either on tsc after tsc_init() is
called later in boot, or using jiffies when clock interrupts are enabled,
which is also happens later in boot.

On the other hand, tsc frequency is known from as early as when
tsc_early_init() is called.

Use the early tsc calibration to output timestamps early.
