Subject[PATCH 00/25] sched/nohz: Make kcpustat vtime aware (Fix kcpustat on nohz_full)
Kcpustat (the stats you see for each CPU on /proc/stat) is partly
maintained by the tick, updated by TICK_NSEC every jiffy, the same way
we account the cputime for tasks.

Now in the case of nohz_full, kcpustat doesn't get accounted anymore while
the tick is stopped. Vtime maintains the task cputime but not kcpustat.

This issue was hidden as long as we had the 1Hz remaining tick, then
Yauheni Kaliuta made me remember that problem.

I scratched my head a lot on this, due to all the possible races.
The solution here is to fetch the task running on a CPU with RCU, read
its vtime delta (like we do for cputime) and add it to the relevant
kcpustat field. There have been several subtleties on the way (concurrent
task nice changes, earliest RCU delayed put_task_struct(), ordering with
vtime) and I couldn't resist a few cleanups so the patchset isn't too
small, sorry about that...
