Goal: avoid programming ced devices too early for large deltas, for
      details, c.f. the description of [21/23].

This v6 fixes two issues I realized after sending v5 out.
The latter was meant to incorporate your feedback to v4.

Previous v4 of this series can be found here:

  http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20160822233320.4548-1-nicstange@gmail.com

and v5 here:

  http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20160904010200.17200-1-nicstange@gmail.com


Concerns raised to v4 were
1.) There should be a flag available which when enabled, should
    exclude a ced from getting its ->mult adjusted.
2.) The ns2cyc multiplication in clockevents_program_event() can
    overflow with the adjusted ->mult.

The first item is addressed by the new
[13/23] ("clockevents: introduce CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag"),
the second by
[14/23] ("clockevents: decouple ->max_delta_ns from ->max_delta_ticks")

A note regarding the CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag: we probably want
to set it for the ->mult = 1, ->shift = 0 devices. However, since the
frequency adjustments are small (and bounded), they actually translate
to noops for those ceds. Thus, setting it there would be a matter of
style and optimization and I left this out for now.


This series can be divided into logical subseries as follows:
[1-6/23]   Don't modify ced rate after registrations through mechanisms
           other than clockevents_update_freq().

[7-12/23]  Let all ced devices set their ->*_delta_ticks values and let
           the clockevent core do the rest.

[13/23]    Introduce the CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag

[14-20/23] Fiddle around with the bound checking code in order to
           allow for non-atomic frequency updates from a CPU different
           than where the ced is programmed.

[21-23/23] Actually do the frequency adjustments.


Tested on x86_64 and next-20160825.


Changes to v5:
 [21/23] ("clockevents: initial support for mono to raw time conversion")
   Replace the max_t() in
     adj = max_t(u64, adj, mult_ce_raw / 8);
   by min_t(): mult_ce_raw / 8 actually sets an upper bound on the
   mult adjustments.

 [23/23] ("timekeeping: inform clockevents about freq adjustments")
   Move the clockevents_adjust_all_freqs() invocation from
   timekeeping_apply_adjustment() to timekeeping_freqadjust().
   Reason is given in the patch description.


Changes to v4:
 [1-12/23] Unchanged

 [13/23] ("clockevents: introduce CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag")
   New.

 [14/23] ("clockevents: decouple ->max_delta_ns from ->max_delta_ticks")
   New. Solves the overflow problem the former
   [13/22] ("clockevents: check a programmed delta's bounds in terms of cycles")
   from v4 introduced.

   (Note that the former
    [14/22] ("clockevents: clockevents_program_event(): turn clc into unsigned long")
    from v4 has been purged.)

 [15/23] ("clockevents: do comparison of delta against minimum in terms of cycles")
   This is the former
   [13/22] ("clockevents: check a programmed delta's bounds in terms of cycles"),
   but only for the ->min_delta_* -- the ->max_delta_* are handled by [14/23] now.

 [16/23] ("clockevents: clockevents_program_min_delta(): don't set ->next_event")
   Former [15/22] unchanged.

 [17/23] ("clockevents: use ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted to program minimum delta")
   Former [16/22]. Trivially fix compilation error with
   CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS_MIN_ADJUST=n.

 [18/22] ("clockevents: min delta increment: calculate min_delta_ns from ticks")
   Former [17/22] unchanged.

 [19/23] ("timer_list: print_tickdevice(): calculate ->min_delta_ns dynamically")
   Corresponds to former
   [18/22] ("timer_list: print_tickdevice(): calculate ->*_delta_ns dynamically")
   from v4, but only for ->min_delta_ns. The changes required for the display of
   ->max_delta_ns are now being made in [14/23] already.

 [20/23] ("clockevents: purge ->min_delta_ns")
   Corresponds to former
   [19/22] ("clockevents: purge ->min_delta_ns and ->max_delta_ns"),
   but with ->max_delta_ns being kept.

 [21/23] ("clockevents: initial support for mono to raw time conversion")
   Former [20/22] with the following changes:
   - Don't adjust mult for those ced's that have CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST set.
   - Don't meld __clockevents_update_bounds() into __clockevents_adjust_freq()
     anymore: the bounds for those devices having CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST set
     must have got their bounds set as well.
   - In __clockevents_calc_adjust_freq(), make sure that the adjusted mult
     doesn't exceed the original by more than 12.5%. C.f. [14/23].
   - In timekeeping, define timekeeping_get_mono_mult() only for
     CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS=y.

  [22/23] ("clockevents: make setting of ->mult and ->mult_adjusted atomic")
   Former [12/22], but with the description updated: previously, it said that
   this patch would introduce a new locking dependency. This is not true.

  [23/23] ("timekeeping: inform clockevents about freq adjustments")
    Former [22/22] with the following changes:
    - Don't adjust mult for those ced's that have CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST set.
    - In clockevents_adjust_all_freqs(), reuse the adjusted cached mult only
      if the associated ->shift also matches.
    - Introduce noop clockevents_adjust_all_freqs() in order to fix a
      compilation error with CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS=n.

With the upcoming NTP correction related rate adjustments to be implemented
in the clockevents core, the latter needs to get informed about every rate
change of a clockevent device made after its registration.

Currently, sh_cmt violates this requirement in that it registers its
clockevent device with a dummy rate and sets its final ->mult and ->shift
values from its ->set_state_oneshot() and ->set_state_periodic() functions
respectively.

This patch moves the setting of the clockevent device's ->mult and ->shift
values to before its registration.

Note that there has been some back and forth regarding this question with
respect to the clocksource also provided by this driver:
  commit f4d7c3565c16 ("clocksource: sh_cmt: compute mult and shift before
                        registration")
moves the rate determination from the clocksource's ->enable() function to
before its registration. OTOH, the later
  commit 3593f5fe40a1 ("clocksource: sh_cmt: __clocksource_updatefreq_hz()
                        update")
basically reverts this, saying
  "Without this patch the old code uses clocksource_register() together
   with a hack that assumes a never changing clock rate."

However, I checked all current sh_cmt users in arch/sh as well as in
arch/arm/mach-shmobile carefully and right now, none of them changes any
rate in any clock tree relevant to sh_cmt after their respective
time_init(). Since all sh_cmt instances are created after time_init(), none
of them should ever observe any clock rate changes.

What's more, both, a clocksource as well as a clockevent device, can
immediately get selected for use at their registration and thus, enabled
at this point already. So it's probably safer to assume a "never changing
clock rate" here.

- Move the struct sh_cmt_channel's ->rate member to struct sh_cmt_device:
  it's a property of the underlying clock which is in turn specific to
  the sh_cmt_device.
- Determine the ->rate value in sh_cmt_setup() at device probing rather
  than at first usage.
- Set the clockevent device's ->mult and ->shift values right before its
  registration.
- Although not strictly necessary for the upcoming clockevent core changes,
  set the clocksource's rate at its registration for consistency.

change of a clockevent device made after its registration.

Currently, sh_tmu violates this requirement in that it registers its

Note that there has been some back and forth regarding this question with
respect to the clocksource also provided by this driver:

before its registration. OTOH, the later

immediately get selected for use at their registration and thus, enabled
at this point already. So it's probably safer to assume a "never changing
clock rate" here.

- Move the struct sh_tmu_channel's ->rate member to struct sh_tmu_device:
  it's a property of the underlying clock which is in turn specific to
  the sh_tmu_device.
- Determine the ->rate value in sh_tmu_setup() at device probing rather
  than at first usage.
- Set the clockevent device's rate at its registration.
- Although not strictly necessary for the upcoming clockevent core changes,
  set the clocksource's rate at its registration for consistency.

Currently, the em_sti driver prepares and enables the needed clock in
em_sti_enable(), potentially called through its clockevent device's
->set_state_oneshot().

However, the clk_prepare() step may sleep whereas tick_program_event() and
thus, ->set_state_oneshot(), can be called in atomic context.

Split the clk_prepare_enable() in em_sti_enable() into two steps:
- prepare the clock at device probing via clk_prepare()
- and enable it in em_sti_enable() via clk_enable().
Slightly reorder resource initialization in em_sti_probe() in order to
facilitate error handling.

With the upcoming NTP correction related rate adjustments to be implemented
in the clockevents core, the latter needs to get informed about every rate
change of a clockevent device made after its registration.

Currently, em_sti violates this requirement in that it registers its
clockevent device with a dummy rate and sets its final rate through
clockevents_config() called from its ->set_state_oneshot().

This patch moves the setting of the clockevent device's rate to its
registration.

I checked all current em_sti users in arch/arm/mach-shmobile and right now,
none of them changes any rate in any clock tree relevant to em_sti after
their respective time_init(). Since all em_sti instances are created after
time_init(), none of them should ever observe any clock rate changes.

- Determine the ->rate value in em_sti_probe() at device probing rather
  than at first usage.
- Set the clockevent device's rate at its registration.
- Although not strictly necessary for the upcoming clockevent core changes,
  set the clocksource's rate at its registration for consistency.

With the upcoming NTP correction related rate adjustments to be implemented
in the clockevents core, the latter needs to get informed about every rate
change of a clockevent device made after its registration.

Currently, h8300_timer8 violates this requirement in that it registers its
clockevent device with the correct rate, but resets its ->mult and ->rate
values in timer8_clock_event_start(), called from its ->set_state_oneshot()
function.

It seems like
  commit 4633f4cac85a ("clocksource/drivers/h8300: Cleanup startup and
                        remove module code."),
which introduced the rate initialization at registration, missed to remove
the manual setting of ->mult and ->shift from timer8_clock_event_start().

Purge the setting of ->mult, ->shift, ->min_delta_ns and ->max_delta_ns
from timer8_clock_event_start().

A clockevent device's rate should be configured before or at registration
and changed afterwards through clockevents_update_freq() only.

For the configuration at registration, we already have
clockevents_config_and_register().

Right now, there are no clockevents_config() users outside of the
clockevents core.

To mitigiate the risk of drivers errorneously reconfiguring their rates
through clockevents_config() *after* device registration, make
clockevents_config() static.

The struct clock_event_device has got the ->min_delta_ns, ->max_delta_ns,
->min_delta_ticks and ->max_delta_ticks members for setting the bounds
of valid deltas to be programmed.

During operation, the clockevent core uses the ->*_delta_ns versions only.
OTOH, the ->*_delta_ticks are currently used solely for the calculations of
the ->*_delta_ns values in clockevents_config().

>From the hardware's point of view, giving the valid ranges in terms of
cycles, i.e. the ->*_delta_ticks values, is the natural choice.

Right now, as the ratio of ns/cycles is fixed, it doesn't matter much which
unit of measurement is actually used by the clockevents core. (Well, apart
from the fact that nearly all drivers which set the ->*_delta_ns manually
don't round towards the correct direction).

This situation is going to change though: as NTP time correction awareness
will be introduced to the clockevents core, the ratio ns/cycles will cease
to stay fixed at all times.

In conclusion, every driver should hand its valid range in terms of an
invariant unit, i.e. cycles, to the clockevent core.

Those drivers which configure their clockevent devices via
clockevents_config_and_register() already do this.

This patch makes the vast majority of the remaining drivers do that, too.
For the sake of bisectability, the manual settings of the ->*delta_ns
by drivers will be removed by a later patch.

This patch was created with the help of the Coccinelle script below. It is
noteworthy that for constructs like

  ced.min_delta_ns = clockevent_delta2ns(<cycles>, &ced) + 1;

it is assumed that the +1 addition is done in order to compensate for
any rounding introduced by the conversion of cycles to ns and thus,
is irrelevant for ->min_delta_cycles.

With the yet to come introduction of NTP correction awareness to the
clockevent core, drivers should report their valid ranges in units of
cycles to the latter.

Currently, the s390's CPU timer clockevent device is initialized as
follows:

  cd->min_delta_ns    = 1;
  cd->max_delta_ns    = LONG_MAX;

Note that the device's time to cycle conversion factor, i.e.
cd->mult / (2^cd->shift), is approx. equal to 4.

Hence, this would translate to

  cd->min_delta_ticks = 4;
  cd->max_delta_ticks = 4 * LONG_MAX;

However, a minimum value of 1ns is in the range of noise anyway and the
clockevent core will take care of this by increasing it to 1us or so.
Furthermore, 4*LONG_MAX will overflow the unsigned long argument the
clockevent devices gets programmed with.

Thus, initialize ->min_delta_ticks with 1 and ->max_delta_ticks with
ULONG_MAX.

With the yet to come introduction of NTP correction awareness to the
clockevent core, drivers should report their valid ranges in units of
cycles to the latter.

Currently, the x86's uv rtc clockevent device is initialized as follows:

  clock_event_device_uv.min_delta_ns = NSEC_PER_SEC /
                                 sn_rtc_cycles_per_second;
  clock_event_device_uv.max_delta_ns = clocksource_uv.mask *
                                 (NSEC_PER_SEC / sn_rtc_cycles_per_second);

This translates to a ->min_delta_ticks value of 1 and a ->max_delta_ticks
value of clocksource_uv.mask.

Initialize ->min_delta_ticks and ->max_delta_ticks with these values
respectively.

With the yet to come introduction of NTP correction awareness to the
clockevent core, drivers should report their valid ranges in units of
cycles to the latter.

Currently, the tile's timer clockevent device is initialized as follows:

  evt->max_delta_ns = clockevent_delta2ns(MAX_TICK, evt);

and

  .min_delta_ns = 1000,

The first one translates to a ->max_delta_ticks value of MAX_TICK.
For the latter, note that the clockevent core will superimpose a
minimum of 1us by itself -- setting ->min_delta_ticks to 1 is safe here.

Initialize ->min_delta_ticks and ->max_delta_ticks with these values.

Now that all clockevent drivers set ->min_delta_ticks and ->max_delta_ticks
independently of whether they use clockevents_config*() or not, the
clockevent core can calculate ->min_delta_ns and ->max_delta_ns from these
unconditionally.

The goal is to prepare the clockevent core for introducing NTP rate
correction awareness: as the clockevent devices' rates will get adjusted,
the ->*_delta_ns won't stay fixed but need to get changed as well.

Thus, make the clockevent core calculate the ->*_delta_ns values from
the invariant ->_delta_ticks ones at device registration.

In order to facilitate this, move the corresponding code from
clockevents_config() into its own helper function,
__clockevents_update_bounds() and invoke this where needed, in
particular from clockevents_register_device().

Note that there is a side effect affecting those drivers
- not using clockevents_config*()
- and manually initializing their ->min_delta_ns to values less than 1us.
In order to avoid "pointless noise", the clockevent core always sets
->min_delta_ns to values >= 1us, and thus, those drivers' ->min_delta_ns
is now increased. I think that this side effect is desired though.

Now that the clockevent core always initializes the ->*_delta_ns values
from their ->_delta_ticks counterparts, there is no point in having the
clockevent devices' drivers doing so as well.

Don't initialize ->min_delta_ns and ->max_delta_ns from the clockevent
devices' drivers.

This patch was created with the help of the Coccinelle script below.
One initialization of ->min_delta_ns in arch/tile/kernel/time.c gets
missed by this Cocci script and its removal has been manually added.

Upcoming changes to the clockevent core will make it adjusting a clockevent
device's mult/shift pair in order to compensate for NTP corrections made
by the timekeeping core.

For certain devices this behaviour is unwanted. Introduce the
CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag that, when being set, will cause a clockevent
device to be excluded from those adjustments.

Before converting the given delta from ns to cycles by means of the
mult/shift pair, clockevents_program_event() enforces it to be less or
equal than ->max_delta_ns. Simplified, this reads as

  delta = min(delta, dev->max_delta_ns);
  clc = (delta * dev->mult) >> dev->shift;

A device's ->max_delta_ns is chosen such that
1.) The multiplication does not overflow 64 bits.
2.) clc fits into an unsigned long.
3.) clc <= the ->max_delta_ticks allowed by hardware.

Item 3.) is responsible for making ->max_delta_ns depend tightly on
->max_delta_ticks and the device's frequency, i.e. its mult/shift pair.
As it stands, any update to ->mult would require a corresponding change of
->max_delta_ns as well and these two had to get consumed in the clockevent
programming path atomically. This would have a negative performance impact
as soon as we start adjusting ->mult from a different CPU with upcoming
changes making the clockevents core NTP correction aware: some kind of
locking would have been needed in the event programming path.

In order to circumvent this necessity, ->max_delta_ns could be made small
enough to cover the whole range of possible adjustments to ->mult,
eliminating the need to update it at all.

The timekeeping core never adjusts its mono clock's inverse frequency by
more than 11% (c.f. timekeeping_adjust()). This means that a clockevent
device's adjusted mult will never grow beyond 1 / (1-11%) = 112.4% of its
initial value. Thus, reducing ->max_delta_ns unconditionally to
1/112.4% = 89% would do the trick. (Actually, setting it to 8/9 = 88.89%
thereof allows for mult increases of up to 12.5% = 1/8 which is good for
binary arithmetic.)

However, such a decrease of ->max_delta_ns could become problematic for
devices whose ->max_delta_ticks is small, i.e. those for whom item 3.)
prevails.

In order to work around this, I chose to make ->max_delta_ns completely
independent of ->max_delta_ticks. It is set to 8/9 of the maximum value
satisfying conditions 1.) and 2.) for the given ->mult. Item 3.) is made
explicit by introducing an extra min(clc, ->max_delta_ticks) after the ns
to cycles conversion in clockevents_program_event(). This way, the maximum
programmable delta is reduced only for those devices which have got a large
->max_delta_ticks anyway. This comes at the cost of an extra min() in the
event programming path though.

So,
- In the case of CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST not being enabled, set
  ->max_delta_ns to 8/9 of the maximum possible value such that items 1.)
  and 2.) hold for the given ->mult. OTOH, if CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST
  is not set, set ->max_delta_ns to the full such value.

- Add a

    clc = min(clc, dev->max_delta_ticks)

  after the ns to cycle conversion in clockevents_program_event().

- Move the ->max_delta_ticks member into struct clock_event_device's
  first 64 bytes in order to optimize for cacheline usage.

- Finally, preserve the semantics of /proc/timer_list by letting it display
  the minimum of ->max_delta_ns and ->max_delta_ticks converted to ns at
  the 'max_delta_ns' field.

Before converting the given delta from ns to cycles by means of the
mult/shift pair, clockevents_program_event() enforces it to be greater or
equal than ->max_delta_ns. Simplified, this reads as

  delta = max(delta, dev->min_delta_ns);
  clc = (delta * dev->mult) >> dev->shift;

Note that ->min_delta_ns is more or less ->min_delta_ticks converted to
nanoseconds and thus, it depends on the device's mult/shift pair as well.
Thus, any update to ->mult would require a corresponding change of
->min_delta_ns as well and these two had to get consumed in the clockevent
programming path atomically. This would have a negative performance impact
as soon as we start adjusting ->mult from a different CPU with upcoming
changes making the clockevents core NTP correction aware: some kind of
locking would have been needed in the event programming path.

These costly atomic reads in the event programming path can be avoided by
doing the comparison against the lower bound in terms of cycles instead of
nanoseconds.

Now, as it stands, ->min_delta_ns is not always completely equivalent
to ->min_delta_ticks: first, it is forced to be >= 1us and second,
clockevents_program_min_delta() can increase it if
CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS_MIN_ADJUST=y.

In order to account for this, introduce ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted which
is supposed to be equivalent to ->min_delta_ns. Keep the original
->min_delta_ticks for reconfiguration.

The invariant ->min_delta_ticks <= ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted will be
guaranteed to hold at all times. This will allow for non-atomic updates of
 ->mult and ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted -- as long as we stay within a
device's allowed bounds, we don't care for small deviations.

Make clockevents_program_event() use ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted for the
enforcement of the lower bound on the delta value.

Finally, slightly reorder the members of struct clock_event_device in order
to keep the now often used ones close together.

Currently, clockevents_program_min_delta() sets a clockevent device's
->next_event to the point in time where the minimum delta would actually
expire:

  delta = dev->min_delta_ns;
  dev->next_event = ktime_add_ns(ktime_get(), delta);

For your reference, this is so since the initial advent of
clockevents_program_min_delta() with
  commit d1748302f70b ("clockevents: Make minimum delay adjustments
                        configurable").

clockevents_program_min_delta() is called from clockevents_program_event()
only. More specifically, it is called if the latter's force argument is set
and, neglecting the case of device programming failure for the moment, if
the requested expiry is in the past.

On the contrary, if the expiry requested from clockevents_program_event()
is in the future, but less than ->min_delta_ns behind, then
- ->next_event gets set to that expiry verbatim
- but the clockevent device gets silently programmed to fire after
  ->min_delta_ns only.

Thus, in the extreme cases of expires == ktime_get() and
expires == ktime_get() + 1, the respective values of ->next_event would
differ by ->min_delta_ns while the clockevent device would actually get
programmed to fire at (almost) the same times (with force being set,
of course).

While this discontinuity of ->next_event at expires == ktime_get() is not
a problem by itself, the mere use of ->min_delta_ns in the event
programming path hinders upcoming changes making the clockevent core
NTP correction aware: both, ->mult and ->min_delta_ns would need to get
updated as well as consumed atomically and we'd rather like to avoid any
locking here.

Thus, let clockevents_program_event() unconditionally set ->next_event to
the expiry time actually requested by its caller, i.e. don't set
->next_event from clockevents_program_min_delta().

A few notes on why this change is safe with the current consumers of
->next_event:
1.
Note that a clockevents_program_event() with a requested expiry in the
past and force being set basically means: "fire ASAP". Now, consider this
so programmed event getting handed once again to
clockevents_program_event(), i.e. that a

  clockevents_program_event(dev, dev->next_event, false)

as in __clockevents_update_freq() is done.
With this change applied, clockevents_program_event() would now properly
detect the expiry being in the past and, due to the force argument being
unset, wouldn't actually do anything.
Before this change OTOH, there would be the (very unlikely) possibility
that the requested event is still somewhere in the future and
clockevents_program_event() would silently delay the event expiration by
another ->min_delta_ns.

2.
The periodic tick handlers on oneshot-only devices use ->next_event
to calculate the followup expiry time.
tick_handle_periodic() spins on reprogramming the clockevent device
until some expiry in the future has been reached:

  ktime_t next = dev->next_event;
  ...
  for(;;) {
    next = ktime_add(next, tick_period);
    if (!clockevents_program_event(dev, next, false))
      return;
    ...
  }

Thus, tick_handle_periodic() isn't affected by this change.
For tick_handle_periodic_broadcast(), the situation is different since

  commit 2951d5c031a3 ("tick: broadcast: Prevent livelock from event
                        handler")

though: a loop similar to the one from tick_handle_periodic() above got
replaced by a single

  ktime_t next = ktime_add(dev->next_event, tick_period);
  clockevents_program_event(dev, next, true);

In the case that dev->next_event + tick_period happens to be less than
ktime_get() + ->min_delta_ns, without this change applied, ->next_event
would get recovered to some point in the future after a single
tick_handle_periodic_broadcast() event.
On the contrary, with this patch applied, it could potentially take some
number of tick_handle_periodic_broadcast() events, each separated by
->min_delta_ns only, until ->next_event is able to catch up with the
current ktime_get(). However, if this turns out to become a problem,
the reprogramming loop in tick_handle_periodic_broadcast() can probably
be restored easily.

3.
In kernel/time/tick-broadcast.c, the broadcast receiving clockevent
devices' ->next_event is read multiple times in order to determine who's
next or who must be pinged. These uses all continue to work. Moreover,
clockevent devices getting programmed to something less than
ktime_get() + ->min_delta_ns
might not be the best candidates for a transition into C3 anyway.

4.
Finally, a "sleep length" is calculated at the very end of
tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() as follows:

  ts->sleep_length = ktime_sub(dev->next_event, now);

AFAICS, this can happen to be negative w/o this change applied already: in
NOHZ_MODE_HIGHRES mode there can be some overdue hrtimers whose removal is
blocked because tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() gets called with interrupts
disabled. Unfortunately, the only user, the menu cpuidle governor,
can't cope with negative sleep lengths as it casts the return value
of the tick_nohz_get_sleep_length() getter to an unsigned int.
This change can very well make things worse here. A followup patch
will force this ->sleep_length to >= 0.

In clockevents_increase_min_delta(), don't use ->min_delta_ns but
calculate it dynamically from ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted.

As clockevents_increase_min_delta() gets invoked only rarely, the
additional division should not be an issue from a performance standpoint.

print_tickdevice(), assembling the per-tick device sections in
/proc/timer_list, is the last user of struct clock_event_device's
->min_delta_ns member.

In order to make this one fully obsolete while retaining userspace ABI,
calculate the displayed value of 'min_delta_ns' on the fly from
->min_delta_ticks_adjusted.

The struct clock_event_device's ->min_delta_ns member isn't used anymore.

Purge it.

In __clockevents_update_bounds(), shortcut the
  ->min_delta_ticks => ->min_delta_ns => ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted
calculation detour -- it had been made solely for the purpose of ensuring
that ->min_delta_ticks_adjusted corresponds to something >= 1us.

With NOHZ_FULL and one single well-isolated, CPU consumptive task, one
would expect approximately one clockevent interrupt per second. However, on
my Intel Haswell where the monotonic clock is the TSC monotonic clock and
the clockevent device is the TSC deadline device, it turns out that every
second, there are two such interrupts: the first one arrives always
approximately ~50us before the scheduled deadline as programmed by
tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() through the hrtimer API. The
__hrtimer_run_queues() called in this interrupt detects that the queued
tick_sched_timer hasn't expired yet and simply does nothing except
reprogramming the clock event device to fire shortly after again.

These too early programmed deadlines are explained as follows:
clockevents_program_event() programs the clockevent device to fire
after
  f_event * delta_t_progr
clockevent device cycles where f_event is the clockevent device's hardware
frequency and delta_t_progr is the requested time interval. After that many
clockevent device cycles have elapsed, the device underlying the monotonic
clock, that is the monotonic raw clock has seen f_raw / f_event as many
cycles.
The ktime_get() called from __hrtimer_run_queues() interprets those
cycles to run at the frequency of the monotonic clock. Summarizing:
  delta_t_perc = 1/f_mono * f_raw/f_event * f_event * delta_t_progr
               = f_raw / f_mono * delta_t_progr
with f_mono being the monotonic clock's frequency and delta_t_perc being
the elapsed time interval as perceived by __hrtimer_run_queues().

Now, f_mono is not a constant, but is dynamically adjusted in
timekeeping_adjust() in order to compensate for the NTP error. With the
large values of delta_t_progr of 10^9ns with NOHZ_FULL, the error made
becomes significant and results in the double timer interrupts described
above.

Compensate for this error by multiplying the clockevent device's f_event
by f_mono/f_raw.

Namely:
- Introduce a ->mult_adjusted member to the struct clock_event_device. Its
  value is supposed to be equal to ->mult * f_mono/f_raw for devices
  which don't have the CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag set, equal to ->mult
  otherwise.
- Introduce the timekeeping_get_mono_mult() helper which provides
  the clockevent core with access to the timekeeping's current f_mono
  and f_raw.
- Introduce the helper __clockevents_adjust_freq() which
  sets a clockevent device's ->mult_adjusted member as appropriate. It is
  implemented with the help of the new __clockevents_calc_adjust_freq().
- Call __clockevents_adjust_freq() at clockevent device registration time
  as well as at frequency updates through clockevents_update_freq().
- Use the ->mult_adjusted rather than ->mult in the ns to cycle
  conversion made in clockevents_program_event() as well as in the
  cycle to ns conversion in cev_delta2ns().
- Finally, move ->mult out of struct clock_event_device's first cacheline.

Note that future adjustments of the monotonic clock are not taken into
account yet. Furthemore, this patch assumes that after a clockevent
device's registration, its ->mult changes only through calls to
clockevents_update_freq().

In order to avoid races between setting a struct clock_event_device's
->mult_adjusted in clockevents_update_freq() and yet to be implemented
updates triggered from the timekeeping core, the setting of ->mult and
->mult_adjusted should be made atomic.

Protect the update in clockevents_update_freq() by locking the
clockevents_lock spinlock. Frequency updates are expected to be done
seldomly and thus, taking this subsystem lock should not have any impact
on performance.

Note that the call to tick_broadcast_update_freq() is also protected
by this clockevents_lock and thus, this patch can take the
tick_broadcast_lock with the clockevents_lock being held. However,
this is supposed to be safe since the sequence
  __clockevents_unbind() -> clockevents_replace() ->
  tick_install_replacement() -> tick_setup_device() ->
  tick_device_uses_broadcast()
already does this, too.

* [RFC v6 23/23] timekeeping: inform clockevents about freq adjustments
  2016-09-09 20:00 [RFC v6 00/23] adapt clockevents frequencies to mono clock Nicolai Stange

Upon adjustments of the monotonic clock's frequencies from the
timekeeping core, the clockevents devices' ->mult_adjusted should be
changed accordingly, too.

Introduce clockevents_adjust_all_freqs() which traverses all registered
clockevent devices and, if the CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_NO_ADJUST flag is not set,
recalculates their ->mult_adjusted based on the monotonic clock's current
frequency.

Call clockevents_adjust_all_freqs() from timekeeping_freqadjust().

Note that it might look like as if timekeeping_apply_adjustment() was the
more natural candidate to trigger the clockevent devices' frequency updates
from: it's the single place where the mono clock's ->mult is changed.
However, timekeeping_apply_adjustment() is also invoked for the
on-off-controlled adjustments made to the mono clock's ->mult from
timekeeping_adjust(). These adjustments are very small in magnitude and,
more importantly, exhibit some oscillatory behaviour once the NTP error
becomes small. We don't want the clockevent devices' ->mult values to
follow these oscillations because they're negligible and because the
process of updating them would periodically destroy what
clockevents_increase_min_delta() might have built up.

Removing the braces here is just wrong.

	if (foo)
		bar()
	else
		rab();

Is perfectly fine because the lack of braces tells that there are single
line statements in both branches.

	if (foo)
		bar(foo->something, foo->somemore, foo->other,
		    CONST);)
	else
		rab();

Is NOT. Simply because the pattern of a 'if ()' condition without braces
suggests a single line statement to follow. Then the reading flow stops
because there is more than one line. While:


	if (foo) {
		bar(foo->something, foo->somemore, foo->other,
		    CONST);)
	} else {
		rab();
	}

parses fine. With your 4 line single statement it's even worse.

This one is perfectly fine.

While I mostly agree, CodingStyle says:

------------------------------------------------------

Do not unnecessarily use braces where a single statement will do.

	if (condition)
		action();

and

	if (condition)
		do_this();
	else
		do_that();

------------------------------------------------------

Perhaps that should be "with single line statements" instead.

Completely convinced, will redo.

Or even clockevents_config_and_register()?

The reason why I left this mult/shift initialization as is (it has only
been moved from sh_cmt_clock_event_start() by this patch) is that I was
unsure about why this conversion hadn't been done before. That TODO
comment seems to imply that a shift value as calculated by
clockevents_config() isn't always the perfect choice...

However, do you want me to
a.) simply change this patch to use clockevents_config_and_register(),
b.) add a separate patch to this series doing this cleanup,
c.) send such a patch on its own
d.) or leave this initalization as is?

Thanks,

Nicolai Stange
