Subject[006/123] x86, tsc, sched: Recompute cyc2ns_offsets during resume from sleep states
From: Suresh Siddha <suresh.b.siddha@intel.com>

commit cd7240c0b900eb6d690ccee088a6c9b46dae815a upstream.

TSC's get reset after suspend/resume (even on cpu's with invariant TSC
which runs at a constant rate across ACPI P-, C- and T-states). And in
some systems BIOS seem to reinit TSC to arbitrary large value (still
sync'd across cpu's) during resume.

This leads to a scenario of scheduler rq->clock (sched_clock_cpu()) less
than rq->age_stamp (introduced in 2.6.32). This leads to a big value
returned by scale_rt_power() and the resulting big group power set by the
update_group_power() is causing improper load balancing between busy and
idle cpu's after suspend/resume.

This resulted in multi-threaded workloads (like kernel-compilation) go
slower after suspend/resume cycle on core i5 laptops.

Fix this by recomputing cyc2ns_offset's during resume, so that
sched_clock() continues from the point where it was left off during
suspend.
