tsc: Check for sockets instead of CPUs to make code match comment

The unsynchronized_tsc() eventually checks num_possible_cpus(), and
if the system is non-Intel and the number of possible CPUs is greater
than one, assumes that TSCs are unsynchronized.  This despite the
comment saying "assume multi socket systems are not synchronized",
that is, socket rather than CPU.  This behavior was preserved by
commit 8fbbc4b45ce3 ("x86: merge tsc_init and clocksource code") and
by the previous relevant commit 7e69f2b1ead2 ("clocksource: Remove the
update callback").

The clocksource drivers were added by commit 5d0cf410e94b ("Time: i386
Clocksource Drivers") back in 2006, and the comment still said "socket"
rather than "CPU".

Therefore, bravely (and perhaps foolishly) make the code match the

Note that it is possible to bypass both code and comment by booting
with tsc=reliable, but this also disables the clocksource watchdog,
which is undesirable when trust in the TSC is strictly limited.
