clocksource: Resume clocksource without taking the clocksource mutex

git commit 75c5158f converted the clocksource spinlock to a
mutex. This causes the following BUG:

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at
kernel/mutex.c:280 in_atomic(): 0, irqs_disabled(): 1, pid: 2473,

clocksource_resume is called early in the resume process, there is
only one cpu, no processes are running and the interrupts are
disabled. It is therefore possible to resume the clocksources
without taking the clocksource mutex.
