sched_clock: fix calculation of other CPU
The algorithm to calculate the 'now' of another CPU is not correct. At each scheduler tick, each CPU records the last sched_clock and gtod (tick_raw and tick_gtod respectively). If the TSC is somewhat the same in speed between two clocks the algorithm would be: tick_gtod1 + (now1 - tick_raw1) = tick_gtod2 + (now2 - tick_raw2) To calculate now2 we would have: now2 = (tick_gtod1 - tick_gtod2) + (tick_raw2 - tick_raw1) + now1 Currently the algorithm is: now2 = (tick_gtod1 - tick_gtod2) + (tick_raw1 - tick_raw2) + now1 This solves most of the rest of the issues I've had with timestamps in ftace.
