Subject: [PATCH 3.18 019/108] timekeeping: Use proper seqcount initializer

3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit ce10a5b3954f2514af726beb78ed8d7350c5e41c ]

tk_core.seq is initialized open coded, but that misses to initialize the
lockdep map when lockdep is enabled. Lockdep splats involving tk_core seq
consequently lack a name and are hard to read.

Use the proper initializer which takes care of the lockdep map
initialization.
