    To hopefully help, I've rebased the patch onto current git
    (fs/proc/uptime.c has undergone some unrelated changes).

    Subject: [PATCH] Fix idle time field in /proc/uptime

    Git commit 79741dd changes idle cputime accounting, but unfortunately
    the /proc/uptime file hasn't caught up. Here the idle time calculation
    from /proc/stat is copied over.
