Subject[083/111] nohz: Reuse ktime in sub-functions of tick_check_idle.
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>

commit eed3b9cf3fe3fcc7a50238dfcab63a63914e8f42 upstream.

On a system with NOHZ=y tick_check_idle calls tick_nohz_stop_idle and
tick_nohz_update_jiffies. Given the right conditions (ts->idle_active
and/or ts->tick_stopped) both function get a time stamp with ktime_get.
The same time stamp can be reused if both function require one.

On s390 this change has the additional benefit that gcc inlines the
tick_nohz_stop_idle function into tick_check_idle. The number of
instructions to execute tick_check_idle drops from 225 to 144
(without the ktime_get optimization it is 367 vs 215 instructions).

before:

0) | tick_check_idle() {
0) | tick_nohz_stop_idle() {
0) | ktime_get() {
0) | read_tod_clock() {
0) 0.601 us | }
0) 1.765 us | }
0) 3.047 us | }
0) | ktime_get() {
0) | read_tod_clock() {
0) 0.570 us | }
0) 1.727 us | }
0) | tick_do_update_jiffies64() {
0) 0.609 us | }
0) 8.055 us | }

after:

0) | tick_check_idle() {
0) | ktime_get() {
0) | read_tod_clock() {
0) 0.617 us | }
0) 1.773 us | }
0) | tick_do_update_jiffies64() {
0) 0.593 us | }
0) 4.477 us | }
