arch/tile: Use separate, better minsec values for clocksource and sched_clock.
We were using the same 5-sec minsec for the clocksource and sched_clock that we were using for the clock_event_device. For the clock_event_device that's exactly right since it has a short maximum countdown time. But for sched_clock we want to avoid wraparound when converting from ticks to nsec over a much longer window, so we force a shift of 10. And for clocksource it seems dodgy to use a 5-sec minsec as well, so we copy some other platforms and force a shift of 22. Signed-off-by: Chris Metcalf <cmetcalf@tilera.com>
