Subject: [PATCH 14/24] sched: Update rq clock on tickless CPUs before calling check_preempt_curr()

check_preempt_wakeup() of fair class needs an uptodate sched clock
value to update runtime stats of the current task.

When a task is woken up, activate_task() is usually called right before
ttwu_do_wakeup() unless the task is already in the runqueue. In this
case we need to update the rq clock manually in case the CPU runs
tickless because ttwu_do_wakeup() calls check_preempt_wakeup().
