Subject[PATCH] fix rusage semantics
This patch changes the rusage bookkeeping and the semantics of the getrusage
and times calls in a couple of ways.

The first change is in the c* fields counting dead child processes. POSIX
requires that children that have died be counted in these fields when they
are reaped by a wait* call, and that if they are never reaped (e.g. because
of ignoring SIGCHLD, or exitting yourself first) then they are never
counted. These were counted in release_task for all threads. I've changed
it so they are counted in wait_task_zombie, i.e. exactly when being reaped.

POSIX also specifies for RUSAGE_CHILDREN that the report include the reaped
child processes of the calling process, i.e. whole thread group in Linux,
not just ones forked by the calling thread. POSIX specifies tms_c[us]time
fields in the times call the same way. I've moved the c* fields that
contain this information into signal_struct, where the single set of
counters accumulates data from any thread in the group that calls wait*.

Finally, POSIX specifies getrusage and times as returning cumulative totals
for the whole process (aka thread group), not just the calling thread.
I've added fields in signal_struct to accumulate the stats of detached
threads as they die. The process stats are the sums of these records plus
the stats of remaining each live/zombie thread. The times and getrusage
calls, and the internal uses for filling in wait4 results and siginfo_t,
now iterate over the threads in the thread group and sum up their stats
along with the stats recorded for threads already dead and gone.

I added a new value RUSAGE_GROUP (-3) for the getrusage system call rather
than changing the behavior of the old RUSAGE_SELF (0). POSIX specifies
RUSAGE_SELF to mean all threads, so the glibc getrusage call will just
translate it to RUSAGE_GROUP for new kernels. I did this thinking that
someone somewhere might want the old behavior with an old glibc and a new
kernel (it is only different if they are using CLONE_THREAD anyway).
However, I've changed the times system call to conform to POSIX as well and
did not provide any backward compatibility there. In that case there is
nothing easy like a parameter value to use, it would have to be a new
system call number. That seems pretty pointless. Given that, I wonder if
it is worth bothering to preserve the compatible RUSAGE_SELF behavior by
introducing RUSAGE_GROUP instead of just changing RUSAGE_SELF's meaning.
Comments?

I've done some basic testing on x86 and x86-64, and all the numbers come
out right after these fixes. (I have a test program that shows a few
different ways they were wonky before, if you know what to look for.)

This patch is against 2.6.8.1 + the waitid patches in -mm1 + the
notify_parent cleanup I posted earlier.


Thanks,
Roland
