Subject[RFC PATCH v1] powerpc/accounting: do not account system time on transition to user.
Date
Time spent in kernel mode don't need to be accounted on transition
to user space. As far as the time spent in user is known, it
is possible to calculate the time spent in kernel by substracting
the time spent in user.

To do so, this patch modifies vtime_delta() to substract the
time spent in user since the last call to vtime_delta().

This patch gives a 2% improvment of null_syscall() selftest on a 83xx.

Signed-off-by: Christophe Leroy <christophe.leroy@c-s.fr>

But surprisingly, this patch degrades the null_syscall selftest by 20% on the 8xx. Any idea of the reason ?
