This change causes the following compile errors on m68k:

| linux-2.6.20-rc4/kernel/time/clocksource.c: In function `sysfs_show_current_clocksources':
| linux-2.6.20-rc4/kernel/time/clocksource.c:204: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type

spin_lock_irq
    -> _spin_lock_irq
    -> preempt_disable
    -> inc_preempt_count
    -> add_preempt_count
    -> preempt_count
    -> current_thread_info
    -> task_thread_info
which needs the definition of struct task_struct.

The patch below fixes it by including <linux/sched.h> in
kernel/time/clocksource.c. But perhaps this is the right time to move
struct task_struct to its own include instead?

I used to post such a patch once every few years, as it allows to remove
the (indirect) include of that sched.h monster from a few thousand files.
If there is interest in such a move, I'll cook up a patch within the next 
weeks.
