Subject[PATCH 6/6] workqueue: Show the latest workqueue name in /proc/PID/{comm,stat,status}
Date
There can be a lot of workqueue workers and they all show up with the
cryptic kworker/* names making it difficult to understand which is
doing what and how they came to be.

# ps -ef | grep kworker
root 4 2 0 Feb25 ? 00:00:00 [kworker/0:0H]
root 6 2 0 Feb25 ? 00:00:00 [kworker/u112:0]
root 19 2 0 Feb25 ? 00:00:00 [kworker/1:0H]
root 25 2 0 Feb25 ? 00:00:00 [kworker/2:0H]
root 31 2 0 Feb25 ? 00:00:00 [kworker/3:0H]
...

This patch makes workqueue workers report the latest workqueue it was
executing for through /proc/PID/{comm,stat,status}. The extra
information is appended to the kthread name with intervening '+' if
currently executing, otherwise '-'.

# cat /proc/25/comm
kworker/2:0-events_power_efficient
# cat /proc/25/stat
25 (kworker/2:0-events_power_efficient) I 2 0 0 0 -1 69238880 0 0...
# grep Name /proc/25/status
Name: kworker/2:0-events_power_efficient

Unfortunately, ps(1) truncates comm to 15 characters,

# ps 25
PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND
25 ? I 0:00 [kworker/2:0-eve]

making it a lot less useful; however, this should be an easy fix from
ps(1) side.
