    Subject[PATCH RT 04/12] Latency histograms: Detect another yet overlooked sharedprio condition
    From: Carsten Emde <>

    While waiting for an RT process to be woken up, the previous process may
    go to wait and switch to another one with the same priority which then
    becomes current. This condition was not correctly recognized and led to
    erroneously high latency recordings during periods of low CPU load.

    This patch correctly marks such latencies as sharedprio and prevents
    them from being recorded as actual system latency.
