Subject[PATCH v1 01/10] sched/fair: Chance LOAD_AVG_MAX_N from 345 to 347
Date
In commit 5b51f2f80b3b906ce59bd4dce6eca3c7f34cb1b9
Author: Paul Turner <pjt@google.com>

sched: Make __update_entity_runnable_avg() fast

Paul has a program to compute LOAD_AVG_MAX_N, which basically means
how many periods (at least) are needed for LOAD_AVG_MAX, and the result
of calc_conv(1024) is 345:

long mult_inv(long c, int n) {
return (c * runnable_avg_yN_inv[n]) >> WMULT_SHIFT;
}

void calc_conv(long n) {
long old_n;
int i = -1;

printf("convergence (LOAD_AVG_MAX, LOAD_AVG_MAX_N)\n");
do {
old_n = n;
n = mult_inv(n, 1) + 1024;
i++;
} while (n != old_n);
printf("%d> %ld\n", i - 1, n);
printf("\n");
}

The initial value of i is -1, which should be 1 as far as I can tell.
Accordingly, the final result of LOAD_AVG_MAX_N should be changed
from 345 to 347.
