SubjectRE: [patch 012/100] acpi: fix of pmtimer overflow that make Cx states time incorrect
It was reported make some latop booting hang. and is not root caused now. :(

>After tacking detailed for this issue, Yakui and I find it is due to 24
>bit PM timer overflows when some of cpu sleep more than 4 seconds. With
>tickless kernel, the CPU want to sleep as much as possible when system
>idle. But the Cx sleep time are recorded by pmtimer which length is
>determined by BIOS. The current Cx time was gotten in the following
>function from driver/acpi/processor_idle.c:
>
>static inline u32 ticks_elapsed(u32 t1, u32 t2)
>{
> if (t2 >= t1)
> return (t2 - t1);
> else if (!(acpi_gbl_FADT.flags & ACPI_FADT_32BIT_TIMER))
> return (((0x00FFFFFF - t1) + t2) & 0x00FFFFFF);
> else
> return ((0xFFFFFFFF - t1) + t2);
>}
>
>If pmtimer is 24 bits and it take 5 seconds from t1 to t2, in above
>function, just about 1 seconds ticks was recorded. So the Cx time will be
>reduced about 4 seconds. and this is why we see above powertop output.

>To resolve this problem, Yakui and I use ktime_get() to record the Cx
>states time instead of PM timer as the following patch. the patch was
>tested with i386/x86_64 modes on several platforms.
