Subject: [PATCH 01/25] sched/vtime: Fix guest/system mis-accounting on task switch
Date: Wed, 14 Nov 2018 03:45:45 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1542163569-20047-2-git-send-email-frederic@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1542163569-20047-1-git-send-email-frederic@kernel.org>

vtime_account_system() assumes that the target task to account cputime
to is always the current task. This is most often true indeed except on
task switch where we call:

	vtime_common_task_switch(prev)
		vtime_account_system(prev)

Here prev is the scheduling-out task where we account the cputime to. It
doesn't match current that is already the scheduling-in task at this
stage of the context switch.

So we end up checking the wrong task flags to determine if we are
accounting guest or system time to the previous task.

As a result the wrong task is used to check if the target is running in
guest mode. We may then spuriously account or leak either system or
guest time on task switch.

Fix this assumption and also turn vtime_guest_enter/exit() to use the
task passed in parameter as well to avoid future similar issues.
