    Subject[patch 042/114] Fix fixpoint divide exception in acct_update_integrals
    2.6.28-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Heiko Carstens <>

    commit 6d5b5acca9e566515ef3f1ed617e7295c4f94345 upstream.

    Frans Pop reported the crash below when running an s390 kernel under Hercules:

    Reason for this is that cpu time accounting usually only happens from
    interrupt context, but acct_update_integrals gets also called from
    process context with interrupts enabled.

    So in acct_update_integrals we may end up with the following scenario:

    Between reading tsk->stime/tsk->utime and tsk->acct_timexpd an interrupt
    happens which updates accouting values. This causes acct_timexpd to be
    greater than the former stime + utime. The subsequent calculation of

    dtime = cputime_sub(time, tsk->acct_timexpd);

    will be negative and the division performed by


    will generate an exception since the result won't fit into a 32 bit

    In order to fix this just always disable interrupts while accessing any
    of the accounting values.
