sched/cputime: Fix clock_nanosleep()/clock_gettime() inconsistency

Commit d670ec13 "posix-cpu-timers: Cure SMP wobbles" fixes one glibc
test case in cost of breaking another one. After that commit, calling
clock_nanosleep(TIMER_ABSTIME, X) and then clock_gettime(&Y) can result
of Y time being smaller than X time.

Reproducer/tester can be found further below, it can be compiled and ran by:

	gcc -o tst-cpuclock2 tst-cpuclock2.c -pthread
	while ./tst-cpuclock2 ; do : ; done

This reproducer, when running on a buggy kernel, will complain
about "clock_gettime difference too small".

Issue happens because on start in thread_group_cputimer() we initialize
sum_exec_runtime of cputimer with threads runtime not yet accounted and
then add the threads runtime to running cputimer again on scheduler
tick, making it's sum_exec_runtime bigger than actual threads runtime.

KOSAKI Motohiro posted a fix for this problem, but that patch was never
applied: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/5/26/191 .

This patch takes different approach to cure the problem. It calls
update_curr() when cputimer starts, that assure we will have updated
stats of running threads and on the next schedule tick we will account
only the runtime that elapsed from cputimer start. That also assure we
have consistent state between cpu times of individual threads and cpu
time of the process consisted by those threads.
