s390/time: fix sched_clock() overflow

Converting a 64 Bit TOD format value to nanoseconds means that the value
must be divided by 4.096. In order to achieve that we multiply with 125
and divide by 512.
When used within sched_clock() this triggers an overflow after appr.
417 days. Resulting in a sched_clock() return value that is much smaller
than previously and therefore may cause all sort of weird things in
subsystems that rely on a monotonic sched_clock() behaviour.

To fix this implement a tod_to_ns() helper function which converts TOD
values without overflow and call this function from both places that
open coded the conversion: sched_clock() and kvm_s390_handle_wait().
