Subject: [RFC PATCH v3 11/12] xen: Update sched clock offset to avoid system instability in hibernation
Date: Wed, 12 Feb 2020 22:35:19 +0000
Message-ID: <20200212223519.GA4483@dev-dsk-anchalag-2a-9c2d1d96.us-west-2.amazon.com> (raw)

Save/restore xen_sched_clock_offset in syscore suspend/resume during PM
hibernation. Commit '867cefb4cb1012: ("xen: Fix x86 sched_clock() interface
for xen")' fixes xen guest time handling during migration. A similar issue
is seen during PM hibernation when system runs CPU intensive workload.
Post resume pvclock resets the value to 0 however, xen sched_clock_offset
is never updated. System instability is seen during resume from hibernation
when system is under heavy CPU load. Since xen_sched_clock_offset is not
updated, system does not see the monotonic clock value and the scheduler
would then think that heavy CPU hog tasks need more time in CPU, causing
the system to freeze
