cpu-timers: Change SIGEV_NONE timer implementation
When user sets up a timer without associated signal and process does not use any other cpu timers and does not exit, tsk->signal->cputimer is enabled and running forever. Avoid running the timer for no reason. I used below program to check patch does not break current user space visible behavior. #include <sys/time.h> #include <signal.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <string.h> #include <time.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <assert.h> void consume_cpu(void) { int i = 0; int count = 0; for(i=0; i<100000000; i++) count++; } int main(void) { int i; struct sigaction act; struct sigevent evt = { }; timer_t tid; struct itimerspec spec = { }; evt.sigev_notify = SIGEV_NONE; assert(timer_create(CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID, &evt, &tid) == 0); spec.it_value.tv_sec = 10; assert(timer_settime(tid, 0, &spec, NULL) == 0); for (i = 0; i < 30; i++) { consume_cpu(); memset(&spec, 0, sizeof(spec)); assert(timer_gettime(tid, &spec) == 0); printf("%lu.%09lu\n", (unsigned long) spec.it_value.tv_sec, (unsigned long) spec.it_value.tv_nsec); } assert(timer_delete(tid) == 0); return 0; } Signed-off-by: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Hidetoshi Seto <seto.hidetoshi@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Balbir Singh <balbir@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
