90clock takes over a second to run on suspend.
Most systems do not need it. Add NEED_CLOCK_SYNC, and only run hwclock if it is set. This will probably go away entirely in a later release.

+ If your system clock drifts across a suspend/resume or
+ hiberante/thaw cycle, you should set this to true.
+ This will cause pm-utils to synchronize the system clock
+ whenever we go through a sleep/wake cycle at the expense of
+ making suspend/resume take longer.
