cputime: Use local_clock() for full dynticks cputime accounting
Running the full dynticks cputime accounting with preemptible kernel debugging trigger the following warning: [ 4.488303] BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000000] code: init/1 [ 4.490971] caller is native_sched_clock+0x22/0x80 [ 4.493663] Pid: 1, comm: init Not tainted 3.8.0+ #13 [ 4.496376] Call Trace: [ 4.498996] [<ffffffff813410eb>] debug_smp_processor_id+0xdb/0xf0 [ 4.501716] [<ffffffff8101e642>] native_sched_clock+0x22/0x80 [ 4.504434] [<ffffffff8101db99>] sched_clock+0x9/0x10 [ 4.507185] [<ffffffff81096ccd>] fetch_task_cputime+0xad/0x120 [ 4.509916] [<ffffffff81096dd5>] task_cputime+0x35/0x60 [ 4.512622] [<ffffffff810f146e>] acct_update_integrals+0x1e/0x40 [ 4.515372] [<ffffffff8117d2cf>] do_execve_common+0x4ff/0x5c0 [ 4.518117] [<ffffffff8117cf14>] ? do_execve_common+0x144/0x5c0 [ 4.520844] [<ffffffff81867a10>] ? rest_init+0x160/0x160 [ 4.523554] [<ffffffff8117d457>] do_execve+0x37/0x40 [ 4.526276] [<ffffffff810021a3>] run_init_process+0x23/0x30 [ 4.528953] [<ffffffff81867aac>] kernel_init+0x9c/0xf0 [ 4.531608] [<ffffffff8188356c>] ret_from_fork+0x7c/0xb0 We use sched_clock() to perform and fixup the cputime accounting. However we are calling it with preemption enabled from the read side, which trigger the bug above. To fix this up, use local_clock() instead. It takes care of preemption and also provide a more reliable clock source. This is welcome for this kind of statistic that is widely relied on in userspace.
