Very interesting. But your source code doesn't match mine - can you
say what that
There are at least five multiplications there (all inlined):
- "imbalance*min_load" from find_idlest_group()
- "factor * p->wakee_flips" in wake_wide()
- at least three in wake_affine:
"prev_eff_load *= capacity_of(this_cpu)"
"this_eff_load *= this_load + effective_load(tg, this_cpu, weight, weight)"
"prev_eff_load *= load + effective_load(tg, prev_cpu, 0, weight)"
(There are other multiplications too, but they are by constants afaik
and don't match yours).
None of those seem to have anything to do with the 3.16..3.17 changes,
but I might be missing something, and obviously this also might have
nothing to do with the problems anyway.
Adding Ingo/PeterZ to the participants again.
