sched_clock: Disable seqlock lockdep usage in sched_clock()

Unfortunately the seqlock lockdep enablement can't be used
in sched_clock(), since the lockdep infrastructure eventually
calls into sched_clock(), which causes a deadlock.

Thus, this patch changes all generic sched_clock() usage
to use the raw_* methods.
