Subject: [PATCH 12/27] sched: Update rq clock on nohz CPU before migrating tasks

Because the sched_class::put_prev_task() callback of rt and fair
classes are referring to the rq clock to update their runtime
statistics. A CPU running in tickless mode may carry a stale value.
We need to update it there.
