clock: initialize dummy clocksource statically
Assigning the dummy clocksource in a initcall has the problem that get_time_ns() crashes before that initcall is executed. This happens when dmesg support is enabled in conjunction with CONFIG_DEBUG_INITCALLS. In this case the dmesg code wants to have the timestamp of a log message. Solve this by setting the current clocksource to the dummy clock statically and not at runtime. This way we always have a dummy clock available.
