Subject[BUG] cpufreq: constant cpu_khz
From
Date
Hi,


I noticed that my sched_clock() was slow on a number of machine, so I
started looking at cpufreq. I inserted the following printk in the
set_cyc2ns_scale() function, which is called from the cpufreq change
notifier:

diff --git a/arch/x86/kernel/tsc.c b/arch/x86/kernel/tsc.c
index 46af716..8dffd82 100644
--- a/arch/x86/kernel/tsc.c
+++ b/arch/x86/kernel/tsc.c
@@ -261,6 +263,9 @@ static void set_cyc2ns_scale(unsigned long cpu_khz, int cpu)
if (cpu_khz)
*scale = (NSEC_PER_MSEC << CYC2NS_SCALE_FACTOR)/cpu_khz;

+ printk(KERN_DEBUG "set_cyc2ns_scale: %lu %lu %d\n",
+ *scale, cpu_khz, cpu);
+
sched_clock_idle_wakeup_event(0);
local_irq_restore(flags);
}

And on my laptop:

root@lappy:~# dmesg | grep cyc2ns | tail -10

even though I'm sure there were some 800 <-> 1200 MHz changes there
esp. as:
