/*
* CONFIG_LATENCYTOP enables a kernel latency tracking infrastructure that is
* used by the "latencytop" userspace tool. The latency that is tracked is not
* the 'traditional' interrupt latency (which is primarily caused by something
* else consuming CPU), but instead, it is the latency an application encounters
* because the kernel sleeps on its behalf for various reasons.
*
* This code tracks 2 levels of statistics:
* 1) System level latency
* 2) Per process latency
*
* The latency is stored in fixed sized data structures in an accumulated form;
* if the "same" latency cause is hit twice, this will be tracked as one entry
* in the data structure. Both the count, total accumulated latency and maximum
* latency are tracked in this data structure. When the fixed size structure is
* full, no new causes are tracked until the buffer is flushed by writing to
* the /proc file; the userspace tool does this on a regular basis.
*
* A latency cause is identified by a stringified backtrace at the point that
* the scheduler gets invoked. The userland tool will use this string to
* identify the cause of the latency in human readable form.
*
* The information is exported via /proc/latency_stats and /proc/<pid>/latency.
* These files look like this:
*
* Latency Top version : v0.1
* 70 59433 4897 i915_irq_wait drm_ioctl vfs_ioctl do_vfs_ioctl sys_ioctl
* | | | |
* | | | +----> the stringified backtrace
* | | +---------> The maximum latency for this entry in microseconds
* | +--------------> The accumulated latency for this entry (microseconds)
* +-------------------> The number of times this entry is hit
*
* (note: the average latency is the accumulated latency divided by the number
* of times)
