Ciro Santilli reported that commit a5ed352596a8b7eb2f9acce34371b944ac3056c4
breaks the execution replay. It happens due to the probing the clock
for the new instances of iothread. Probing of the timerlists' clock
instead of using them for the deadlines calculation is critical for the replay.
However, this probing was made for the timer lists that are empty.
In record mode such lists are not used for the deadlines and corresponding
clock does not queried.
Therefore this patch disables quering the clock for the empty timerlists
and disabled clocks.
