sched: Fix rq->clock synchronization when migrating tasks

sched_fork() -- we do task placement in ->task_fork_fair() ensure we
  update_rq_clock() so we work with current time. We leave the vruntime
  in relative state, so the time delay until wake_up_new_task() doesn't
  matter.

wake_up_new_task() -- Since task_fork_fair() left p->vruntime in
  relative state we can safely migrate, the activate_task() on the
  remote rq will call update_rq_clock() and causes the clock to be
  synced (enough).
