Ahh, thanks Randy!

Why I asked? Look at this script:

#!/bin/sh
prev=0
while true; do cat /proc/stat; done | \
grep -F 'cpu ' | \
cut -d ' ' -f 6 | \
while read next; do
echo -n .
diff=$(($next-$prev))
if test $diff -lt 0; then
echo "$prev -> $next"
fi
prev=$next
done
It catches events when cpu idle counter in /proc/stat goes _backward_.
Typical output is:
.......2099328 -> 2099327
..............................................2099362 -> 2099361
........................................2099391 -> 2099390
............2099401 -> 2099400
.......2099403 -> 2099402
......2099404 -> 2099403
.......2099408 -> 2099407
.......2099413 -> 2099412
..........................2099426 -> 2099425
....................2099437 -> 2099436
.............2099444 -> 2099443
....................2099456 -> 2099455
..............2099464 -> 2099463
....................2099475 -> 2099474
......2099477 -> 2099476
.......2099482 -> 2099481
I hoped this is a race between accounting from timer int and
/proc/stat generation in fs/proc/proc_misc.c
(and there *is* a race but window is tiny)
(patch below, comments welcome). It does not help.

Then I realized I run SMP kernel and accounting isn't
happening in timer int. Will verify this tomorrow,
need to think more about it...
