sched/clock: Fixup early initialization
The code would assume sched_clock_stable() and switch to !stable later, this switch brings a discontinuity in time. The discontinuity on switching from stable to unstable was always present, but previously we would set stable/unstable before initializing TSC and usually stick to the one we start out with. So the static_key bits brought an extra switch where there previously wasn't one. Things are further complicated by the fact that we cannot use static_key as early as we usually call set_sched_clock_stable(). Fix things by tracking the stable state in a regular variable and only set the static_key to the right state on sched_clock_init(), which is ran right after late_time_init->tsc_init(). Before this we would not be using the TSC anyway.
