[PATCH v5 0/2] sched: consider missed ticks when updating cpu load

From: byungchul.park
Date: Mon Nov 09 2015 - 19:36:33 EST

From: Byungchul Park <byungchul.park@xxxxxxx>

change from v4 to v5
- fix comments and commit message
- take new_load into account in update_cpu_load_nohz() and __update_cpu_load()
because it's non-zero in NOHZ_FULL

change from v3 to v4
- focus the problem on full NOHZ

change from v2 to v3
- add a patch which make __update_cpu_load() handle active tickless

change from v1 to v2
- add some additional commit message (logic is same exactly)

additionally i tried to use the return value of hrtimer_forward() instead of
jiffies to get pending tick for updating cpu load. it's easy for
update_cpu_load_nohz() to do that. but for update_idle_cpu_load(), i need
more time to think about how to implement it nicely.

and i will try to fix other stuffs caused by full NOHZ later with another
patch. i decided to send this patch at first because "cpu load update" is a
standalone problem which is not coupled with other stuffs.

sched: make __update_cpu_load() handle NOHZ_FULL tickless
sched: make update_cpu_load_nohz() consider missed ticks in NOHZ_FULL
