That definitely doesn't want to be a globally visible symbol.

idem.

rq and p don't match, see below.

That wants to be plain: schedule(), possibly conditional on having
called sched_class::yield_to.

You're calling this from
yield_to()->sched_class::yield_to()->yield_to_fair()->slice_remain(),
yield_to() already holds p's rq lock.

Like Mike said, the returned figure doesn't really mean anything, its
definitely not the remaining time of a slice. It might qualify for a
weak random number generator though.. :-)

Here you assume @p lives on @rq, but you passed:

+ current->sched_class->yield_to(rq, p);

and rq = this_rq(), so this will go splat.

You cannot simply subtract wall-time from virtual time, see the usage of
calc_delta_fair() in the proposal below.

Then clipping it to min_vruntime doesn't make any sense at all.

Also, modifying the vruntime of one task without also modifying the
vruntime of the other task breaks stuff. You're injecting time into p
without taking time out of current.


Maybe something like:

static void yield_to_fair(struct rq *p_rq, struct task_struct *p)
{
struct rq *rq = this_rq();
struct sched_entity *se = &current->se;
struct cfs_rq *cfs_rq = cfs_rq_of(se);
struct sched_entity *pse = &p->se;
struct cfs_rq *p_cfs_rq = cfs_rq_of(pse);
/*
* Transfer wakeup_gran worth of time from current to @p,
* this should ensure current is no longer eligible to run.
*/
unsigned long wakeup_gran = ACCESS_ONCE(sysctl_sched_wakeup_granularity);
update_rq_clock(rq);
update_curr(cfs_rq);

if (pse != p_cfs_rq->curr) {
__dequeue_entity(p_cfs_rq, pse);
} else {
update_rq_clock(p_rq);
update_curr(p_cfs_rq);
}
se->vruntime += calc_delta_fair(wakeup_gran, se);
pse->vruntime -= calc_delta_fair(wakeup_gran, pse);

clear_buddies(cfs_rq, se);

if (pse != p_cfs_rq->curr) {
__enqueue_entity(p_cfs_rq, pse);
check_preempt_curr(prq, p, 0)
}
}
This isn't strictly correct for the group scheduling case though, that
wants a for_each_sched_entity() loop for both se and pse, but I'd have
to like actually think about that ;-)

A quick hack might be simply dis-allowing yield_to between different
groups, add something like the below to the above function:

#ifdef CONFIG_FAIR_GROUP_SCHED
if (cfs_rq->tg != p_cfs_rq->tg)
return;
#endif
