SubjectRe: [PATCH] sched: cpuacct: Use bigger percpu counter batch values for stats counters

Hi Martin,

Indeed it is, I didn't look closely enough. Same with ia64 so no work to
do on either arch :)

The idea is we are already batching percpu_counter_batch jiffies, so
with CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING we batch the equivalent amount in
cputime.
