Subject: [PATCH] x86, sched: Prevent divisions by zero in frequency invariant accounting
Date: Wed, 22 Apr 2020 16:40:55 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200422144055.18171-1-ggherdovich@suse.cz> (raw)

The product mcnt * arch_max_freq_ratio could be zero if it overflows u64.

For context, a large value for arch_max_freq_ratio would be 5000,
corresponding to a turbo_freq/base_freq ratio of 5 (normally it's more like
1500-2000). A large increment frequency for the MPERF counter would be 5GHz
(the base clock of all CPUs on the market today is less than that). With
these figures, a CPU would need to go without a scheduler tick for around 8
days for the u64 overflow to happen. It is unlikely, but the check is
warranted.
