Subject[PATCH 09/25] kcpustat: Track running task following vtime sequences
Date
In order to make kcpustat vtime aware (ie: work on nohz_full without
freezing), we need to track the task running on the CPU in order to
fetch its vtime delta and add it to the relevant kcpustat field.

The most efficient way to track this task is to use RCU. The task is
assigned on context switch right after we flush the vtime of the previous
task and the next task has been set on vtime.

Things are then prepared to be ordered that way:

WRITER (ctx switch) READER
------------------ -----------------------
vtime_seqcount_write_lock(prev) rcu_read_lock()
//flush prev vtime curr = rcu_dereference(kcpustat->curr)
vtime_seqcount_write_unlock(prev) vtime_seqcount_read_start(curr)
//fetch curr vtime
vtime_seqcount_lock(next) vtime_seqcount_read_end(curr)
//Init vtime rcu_read_unlock()
vtime_seqcount_unlock(next)

rcu_assign_pointer(kcpustat->curr, next)

With this ordering layout, we are sure that we get a sequence with a
coherent couple (task cputime, kcpustat).
