Subject: [PATCH] sched: Provide iowait counters

For counting how long an application has been waiting for (disk) IO,
there currently is only the HZ sample driven information available, while
for all other counters in this class, a high resolution version is
available via CONFIG_SCHEDSTATS.

In order to make an improved bootchart tool possible, we also need
a higher resolution version of the iowait time.

This patch below adds this scheduler statistic to the kernel.
