Subject[PATCH 4.7 03/31] timekeeping: Fix __ktime_get_fast_ns() regression
Date
4.7-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org>

commit 58bfea9532552d422bde7afa207e1a0f08dffa7d upstream.

In commit 27727df240c7 ("Avoid taking lock in NMI path with
CONFIG_DEBUG_TIMEKEEPING"), I changed the logic to open-code
the timekeeping_get_ns() function, but I forgot to include
the unit conversion from cycles to nanoseconds, breaking the
function's output, which impacts users like perf.

This results in bogus perf timestamps like:
swapper 0 [000] 253.427536: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms])

swapper 0 [000] 255.426572: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms])

Instead of more reasonable expected timestamps like:

Add the proper use of timekeeping_delta_to_ns() to convert
the cycle delta to nanoseconds as needed.

Thanks to Brendan and Alexei for finding this quickly after
the v4.8 release. Unfortunately the problematic commit has
landed in some -stable trees so they'll need this fix as
well.

Many apologies for this mistake. I'll be looking to add a
perf-clock sanity test to the kselftest timers tests soon.
