Subject[PATCH v5 1/5] sched_clock: Match scope of read and write seqcounts
Date
Currently the scope of the raw_write_seqcount_begin/end in
sched_clock_register far exceeds the scope of the read section in
sched_clock. This gives the impression of safety during cursory review
but achieves little.

Note that this is likely to be a latent issue at present because
sched_clock_register() is typically called before we enable interrupts,
however the issue does risk bugs being needlessly introduced as the code
evolves.

This patch fixes the problem by increasing the scope of the read locking
performed by sched_clock() to cover all data modified by
sched_clock_register.

We also improve clarity by moving writes to struct clock_data that do
not impact sched_clock() outside of the critical section.
