I couldn't reproduce this running a cpu bound load in a kvm guest on a
nohz_full cpu on 5.11.  The time is almost entirely in cpuacct.usage and
_user, while _sys stays low.

Could you say more about how you're seeing this?  Don't really doubt
there's a problem, just wondering what you're doing.

Definition of struct cpuacct_usage can go away now.

There's a BUG_ON below this that could probably be WARN_ON_ONCE while
you're here

unnecessary whitespace change?
