Subject[PATCH 4.9 29/35] sched/cputime: Fix ksoftirqd cputime accounting regression
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com>

commit 25e2d8c1b9e327ed260edd13169cc22bc7a78bc6 upstream.

irq_time_read() returns the irqtime minus the ksoftirqd time. This
is necessary because irq_time_read() is used to substract the IRQ time
from the sum_exec_runtime of a task. If we were to include the softirq
time of ksoftirqd, this task would substract its own CPU time everytime
it updates ksoftirqd->sum_exec_runtime which would therefore never
progress.

But this behaviour got broken by:

a499a5a14db ("sched/cputime: Increment kcpustat directly on irqtime account")

... which now includes ksoftirqd softirq time in the time returned by
irq_time_read().

This has resulted in wrong ksoftirqd cputime reported to userspace
through /proc/stat and thus "top" not showing ksoftirqd when it should
after intense networking load.

ksoftirqd->stime happens to be correct but it gets scaled down by
sum_exec_runtime through task_cputime_adjusted().

To fix this, just account the strict IRQ time in a separate counter and
use it to report the IRQ time.
