Would it be possible to move this aggregation code (excluding
calc_avgs()) into a separate function which is called from here as
well as from psi_show() before group->some[] and group->full[] are
reported? This would not affect the performance if the information is
not requested and at the same time would keep at least the "total"
field up-to-date when the data is requested. For calc_avgs() I think
we would have to calculate the change in nonidle_total, group->some[]
and group->full[] fields differently because a call to psi_show() in
the middle of two psi_clock() calls would refresh these fields before
2secs expire, however calculating that change is trivial if we store
previous group->some[], group->full[] and nonidle_total values inside
psi_clock(). This would require new fields in psi_group struct to
store these previous values but the upside is that we would eliminate
the problem with reporting potentially stale data (up to 2sec update
delay) and provide a function one can use to refresh group->some[] and
group->full[] and implement custom averaging.

Thanks,
