yield_task_dl() calls update_curr_dl() which calls start_dl_timer()
to throttle current task. But yield_task_dl() doesn't update the rq
clock which will cause start_dl_timer() to set the wrong dl_timer
which may be much later than current deadline time.

For instance, in systems with 100HZ tick, if there're few dl-tasks,
then rq clock will mainly depend on the tick to update its value.
If we choose the CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL_ALL feature, things may get even

Moreover, there're some statistics in update_curr_dl() also relying
on rq clock, like rq_clock_task().

Thus, in yield_task_dl(), we should add update_rq_clock() before
