    x86: fix freeze in x86_64 RTC update code in time_64.c
    Fix hard freeze on x86_64 when the ntpd service calls
    A repeatable but randomly timed freeze has been happening in Fedora 6
    and 7 for the last year, whenever I run the ntpd service on my AMD64x2
    HP Pavilion dv9000z laptop.  This freeze is due to the use of
    spin_lock(&rtc_lock) under the assumption (per a bad comment) that
    set_rtc_mmss is called only with interrupts disabled.  The call from
    ntp.c to update_persistent_clock is made with interrupts enabled.
