sched: Fix softirq time accounting
Peter Zijlstra found a bug in the way softirq time is accounted in VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING on this thread: http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail//linux/kernel/1009.2/01366.html The problem is, softirq processing uses local_bh_disable internally. There is no way, later in the flow, to differentiate between whether softirq is being processed or is it just that bh has been disabled. So, a hardirq when bh is disabled results in time being wrongly accounted as softirq. Looking at the code a bit more, the problem exists in !VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING as well. As account_system_time() in normal tick based accouting also uses softirq_count, which will be set even when not in softirq with bh disabled. Peter also suggested solution of using 2*SOFTIRQ_OFFSET as irq count for local_bh_{disable,enable} and using just SOFTIRQ_OFFSET while softirq processing. The patch below does that and adds API in_serving_softirq() which returns whether we are currently processing softirq or not. Also changes one of the usages of softirq_count in net/sched/cls_cgroup.c to in_serving_softirq. Looks like many usages of in_softirq really want in_serving_softirq. Those changes can be made individually on a case by case basis.
