Subject[PATCH] cpu idle ticks show twice in xen pvm guest
Run below test on xen pvm.
# x=$(cat /proc/stat | grep cpu0 | awk '{print $5}') && sleep 60 \
&& y=$(cat /proc/stat | grep cpu0 | awk '{print $5}') \
&& echo -e "X:$x\nY:$y\nIDLE:" $(echo "scale=3; ($y-$x)/6000*100" | bc)
@ X:58562301
@ Y:58574282
@ IDLE: 199.600

Normal idle percent should be around 100%.
xen_timer_interrupt called account_idle_ticks to account hypervisor stolen idle ticks
but these ticks will be accounted again when idle ticks restarted.
