/*
* Global load-average calculations
*
* We take a distributed and async approach to calculating the global load-avg
* in order to minimize overhead.
*
* The global load average is an exponentially decaying average of nr_running +
* nr_uninterruptible.
*
* Once every LOAD_FREQ:
*
* nr_active = 0;
* for_each_possible_cpu(cpu)
* nr_active += cpu_of(cpu)->nr_running + cpu_of(cpu)->nr_uninterruptible;
*
* avenrun[n] = avenrun[0] * exp_n + nr_active * (1 - exp_n)
*
* Due to a number of reasons the above turns in the mess below:
*
* - for_each_possible_cpu() is prohibitively expensive on machines with
* serious number of cpus, therefore we need to take a distributed approach
* to calculating nr_active.
*
* \Sum_i x_i(t) = \Sum_i x_i(t) - x_i(t_0) | x_i(t_0) := 0
* = \Sum_i { \Sum_j=1 x_i(t_j) - x_i(t_j-1) }
*
* So assuming nr_active := 0 when we start out -- true per definition, we
* can simply take per-cpu deltas and fold those into a global accumulate
* to obtain the same result. See calc_load_fold_active().
*
* Furthermore, in order to avoid synchronizing all per-cpu delta folding
* across the machine, we assume 10 ticks is sufficient time for every
* cpu to have completed this task.
*
* This places an upper-bound on the IRQ-off latency of the machine. Then
* again, being late doesn't loose the delta, just wrecks the sample.
*
* - cpu_rq()->nr_uninterruptible isn't accurately tracked per-cpu because
* this would add another cross-cpu cacheline miss and atomic operation
* to the wakeup path. Instead we increment on whatever cpu the task ran
* when it went into uninterruptible state and decrement on whatever cpu
* did the wakeup. This means that only the sum of nr_uninterruptible over
* all cpus yields the correct result.
*
* This covers the NO_HZ=n code, for extra head-aches, see the comment below.

/*
* Handle NO_HZ for the global load-average.
*
* Since the above described distributed algorithm to compute the global
* load-average relies on per-cpu sampling from the tick, it is affected by
* NO_HZ.
*
* The basic idea is to fold the nr_active delta into a global idle-delta upon
* entering NO_HZ state such that we can include this as an 'extra' cpu delta
* when we read the global state.
*
* Obviously reality has to ruin such a delightfully simple scheme:
*
* - When we go NO_HZ idle during the window, we can negate our sample
* contribution, causing under-accounting.
*
* We avoid this by keeping two idle-delta counters and flipping them
* when the window starts, thus separating old and new NO_HZ load.
*
* The only trick is the slight shift in index flip for read vs write.
*
* 0s 5s 10s 15s
* +10 +10 +10 +10
* |-|-----------|-|-----------|-|-----------|-|
* r:0 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 0
* w:0 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0
*
* This ensures we'll fold the old idle contribution in this window while
* accumlating the new one.
*
* - When we wake up from NO_HZ idle during the window, we push up our
* contribution, since we effectively move our sample point to a known
* busy state.
*
* This is solved by pushing the window forward, and thus skipping the
* sample, for this cpu (effectively using the idle-delta for this cpu which
* was in effect at the time the window opened). This also solves the issue
* of having to deal with a cpu having been in NOHZ idle for multiple
* LOAD_FREQ intervals.
*
* When making the ILB scale, we should try to pull this in as well.
