Subject: [GIT PULL] cputime: Full dynticks task/cputime accounting v7
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 28th January 2013 19:03:57 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Ingo,

Please pull the new full dynticks cputime accounting code that
can be found at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/frederic/linux-dynticks.git
	tags/full-dynticks-cputime-for-mingo

My last concern is the dependency on CONFIG_64BIT. We rely on cputime_t
being u64 for reasonable nanosec granularity implementation. And therefore
we need a single instruction fetch to read kernel cpustat for atomicity
requirement against concurrent incrementation, which only 64 bit archs
can provide.

It's probably no big deal to solve this issue. What we need is simply some
atomic accessors.

There is just no emergency though as this new option depends on the context
tracking subsystem that only x86-64 (and soon ppc64) implements yet. And
this set is complex enough already. I think we can deal with that later.

Thanks.

This implements the cputime accounting on full dynticks CPUs.

Typical cputime stats infrastructure relies on the timer tick and
its periodic polling on the CPU to account the amount of time
spent by the CPUs and the tasks per high level domains such as
userspace, kernelspace, guest, ...

Now we are preparing to implement full  dynticks capability on
Linux for Real Time and HPC users who want full CPU isolation.
This feature requires a cputime accounting that doesn't depend
on the timer tick.

To implement it, this new cputime infrastructure plugs into
kernel/user/guest boundaries to take snapshots of cputime and
flush these to the stats when needed. This performs pretty
much like CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING except that context location
and cputime snaphots are synchronized between write and read
side such that the latter can safely retrieve the pending tickless
cputime of a task and add it to its latest cputime snapshot to
return the correct result to the user.

Changes since v6:

* Fix build error with kvm modules (Thanks Sedat Dilek and
Wu Fenguang)

* Fix mistyped header inclusion in ia64

* Fix more missing symbols for kvm
