Stuck in the timer interrupt.

A lot of timer interrupts.



> CONFIG_PROFILE_ALL_BRANCHES=y

And, looks like a very close recipe to the last hangs we had with
the function graph tracer.
So I'm tempted by the same diagnosis you did with branch prediction
tracing.

Note that the branch profiler does that:

______f.miss_hit[______r]++;

Which is a read + write on the cacheline.
If each "if" are profiled in the timer interrupt, we can
have the cachelines doing a ping-pong of dirtifying since the above
variable is shared.

Then the timer interrupt becomes slower. The function graph tracer itself makes
it slower.
Moreover it is traced itself. So not only the "if" in code are traced, but also
each "if" processed by the function graph tracer on function calls and returns.

Which means a fair amount of cacheline dirtifying.

Then if the timer interrupt is slowed, and we have a lot of them (1000 Hz),
the system spends all of its time inside it.

At least we need the branch tracing to be done per cpu, I guess.

Frederic.
