Subject[RFC/RFT][PATCH 3/7] sched: idle: Do not stop the tick before cpuidle_idle_call()
Date
From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>

Make cpuidle_idle_call() decide whether or not to stop the tick.

First, there are code paths in cpuidle_idle_call() that don't need
the tick to be stopped. In particular, the cpuidle_enter_s2idle()
path deals with the tick (and with the entire timekeeping for that
matter) by itself and it doesn't need the tick to be stopped
beforehand.

Second, to address the issue with short idle duration predictions
by the idle governor after the tick has been stopped, it will be
necessary to change the ordering of some governor code with respect
to some code in tick_nohz_idle_go_idle(). For this purpose, call
tick_nohz_idle_go_idle() in the same branch as cpuidle_select().
