Subject[PATCH 0/8] cputime: Full dynticks task/cputime accounting v6
Date
Hi,

This version fixes everything I had on the TODO list. I'm just not very
happy with the dependency on CONFIG_64BIT. It is necessary because cputime_t
maps to unsigned long long in order to implement a per nanosec granularity
fitting in a reasonable range. And 32 bits archs can't read 64 bits cputime_t
safely (they read low and high part separately, this can race against an update
that does an arithmetic carry after incrementing the low part).
Usual utime/stime/gtime/... are fine because they are protected with the
new seqcount. But kernel_cpustat is not protected on the read side.

I don't know what the right fix is. May be we could use per cpu spinlocks
or seqlocks from both read/update side of kernel_cpustat. Hmm, or perhaps
take curr_task(cpu)->vtime_seqlock before reading it. This requires rq
lock though.

Anyway I believe that specific issue can wait for now. The patchset is already
complicated enough and it depends on context_tracking that is only implemented
on x86-64 yet. I guess once that gets merged and we get a 32 arch to support
the context_tracking, we can start to think about that.

This set is pullable from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/frederic/linux-dynticks.git
vtime/generic-v6

Changes since v5:

- Handle guest cputime
- Handle idle tasks. Those were special because they don't start from schedule()
so they need their own initializations.
- Fix build error with CONFIG_IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING (thanks Wu Fenguang)
- Depend on 64 bits archs to make kern_cpustat reading to be atomic

Thanks.
