Subject[PATCH 3.12 001/181] Revert "sched: Fix sleep time double accounting in enqueue entity"
From: Vincent Guittot <>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 9390675af0835ae1d654d33bfcf16096028550ad upstream.

This reverts commit 282cf499f03ec1754b6c8c945c9674b02631fb0f.

With the current implementation, the load average statistics of a sched entity
change according to other activity on the CPU even if this activity is done
between the running window of the sched entity and have no influence on the
running duration of the task.

When a task wakes up on the same CPU, we currently update last_runnable_update
with the return of __synchronize_entity_decay without updating the
runnable_avg_sum and runnable_avg_period accordingly. In fact, we have to sync
the load_contrib of the se with the rq's blocked_load_contrib before removing
it from the latter (with __synchronize_entity_decay) but we must keep
last_runnable_update unchanged for updating runnable_avg_sum/period during the
next update_entity_load_avg.
