Subjectdoubled idle count
Date
Hi,

After upgrading a Xen virtual machine to Debian's 2.6.26-4 kernel, I
noticed that the idle counter doubled its pace on one of the machines:

service2:~# yes >/dev/null &
[1] 32578
service2:~# grep cpu0 /proc/stat; sleep 1; grep cpu0 /proc/stat
cpu0 141208 9113 57273 13379659 61012 0 792 2350 0
cpu0 141310 9113 57274 13379659 61012 0 792 2350 0
service2:~# fg
yes > /dev/null
^C
service2:~# grep cpu0 /proc/stat; sleep 1; grep cpu0 /proc/stat
cpu0 141952 9113 57277 13383481 61012 0 792 2350 0
cpu0 141953 9113 57278 13383681 61012 0 792 2350 0

One out of three machines show this effect, with the exact same kernel
and Xen versions (3.2.0, dom0 is Debian's stock Etch 2.6.18 kernel).
They aren't hosted by the same machine, though: the misbehaving one is
on a different installation with very similar hardware (3 vs 2 GHz).
All the guest are paravirtual.

service2:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo

I don't know what else would be useful, please ask.
