It turned out we used to use default implementation of sched_clock()
from kernel/sched/clock.c which was as precise as 1/HZ, i.e.
by default we had 10 msec granularity of time measurement.

Now given ARC built-in timers are clocked with the same frequency as
CPU cores we may get much higher precision of time tracking.

Thus we switch to generic sched_clock which really reads ARC hardware
counters.

This is especially helpful for measuring short events.
That's what we used to have:

 Performance counter stats for '/bin/sh -c /root/lmbench-master/bin/arc/hello':

Note how much more meaningful is the second output - time spent for
execution pretty much matches number of cycles spent (we're runnign
@ 1GHz here).
