[PATCH 5.17 0280/1126] sched/cpuacct: Fix charge percpu cpuusage

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

[ Upstream commit 248cc9993d1cc12b8e9ed716cc3fc09f6c3517dd ]

The cpuacct_account_field() is always called by the current task
itself, so it's ok to use __this_cpu_add() to charge the tick time.

But cpuacct_charge() maybe called by update_curr() in load_balance()
on a random CPU, different from the CPU on which the task is running.
So __this_cpu_add() will charge that cputime to a random incorrect CPU.

Fixes: 73e6aafd9ea8 ("sched/cpuacct: Simplify the cpuacct code")
