Subject: [PATCH] cpuidle: Always stop scheduler tick on adaptive-tick CPUs
Date: Tue, 16 Jul 2019 17:25:10 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <6254683.2O5gIZElE2@kreacher> (raw)

From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>

Running the scheduler tick on idle adaptive-tick CPUs is not useful
and it may also be not expected by users (as reported by Thomas), so
add a check to cpuidle_idle_call() to always stop the tick on them
regardless of the idle duration predicted by the governor.

Fixes: 554c8aa8ecad ("sched: idle: Select idle state before stopping the tick")
Reported-by: Thomas Lindroth <thomas.lindroth@gmail.com>
Tested-by: Thomas Lindroth <thomas.lindroth@gmail.com>
