After my OMAP3 board has been running for a while, I'm seeing weird
latency traces like this:

      sh-1574    0d.h2  153us : do_timer (tick_do_update_jiffies64)
      sh-1574    0d.h2  153us : update_wall_time (do_timer)
      sh-1574    0d.h2  153us!: omap_32k_read (update_wall_time)
      sh-1574    0d.h2 1883us : update_xtime_cache (update_wall_time)
      sh-1574    0d.h2 1883us : clocksource_get_next (update_wall_time)
      sh-1574    0d.h2 1883us+: _spin_lock_irqsave (clocksource_get_next)

and after a while:

      sh-17818   0d.h3  153us : do_timer (tick_do_update_jiffies64)
      sh-17818   0d.h3  153us : update_wall_time (do_timer)
      sh-17818   0d.h3  153us!: omap_32k_read (update_wall_time)
      sh-17818   0d.h3 1915us : update_xtime_cache (update_wall_time)
      sh-17818   0d.h3 1915us+: clocksource_get_next (update_wall_time)
      sh-17818   0d.h3 1945us : _spin_lock_irqsave (clocksource_get_next)

Turns out that sched_clock() is using cyc2ns(), which returns NTP
adjusted time. The sched_clock() frequency should not be adjusted. The
patch deletes omap_32k_ticks_to_nsecs() and rewrites sched_clock()
to do the conversion using the constant multiplier.
