Subject[PATCH] proc: speedup /proc/stat handling
From
Date
On a typical 16 cpus machine, "cat /proc/stat" gives more than 4096
bytes, and is slow :

# strace -T -o /tmp/STRACE cat /proc/stat | wc -c
5826
# grep "cpu " /tmp/STRACE
read(0, "cpu 1949310 19 2144714 12117253"..., 32768) = 5826 <0.001504>


Thats partly because show_stat() must be called twice since initial
buffer size is too small (4096 bytes for less than 32 possible cpus)

Fix this by :

1) Taking into account nr_irqs in the initial buffer sizing.

2) Using ksize() to allow better filling of initial buffer.

3) Reduce the bloat on "intr ..." line :
Dont output trailing " 0" values at the end of irq range.

An alternative to 1) would be to remember the largest m->count reached
in show_stat()
