pkt_sched: sch_qfq: properly cap timestamps in charge_actual_service
QFQ+ schedules the active aggregates in a group using a bucket list (one list per group). The bucket in which each aggregate is inserted depends on the aggregate's timestamps, and the number of buckets in a group is enough to accomodate the possible (range of) values of the timestamps of all the aggregates in the group. For this property to hold, timestamps must however be computed correctly. One necessary condition for computing timestamps correctly is that the number of bits dequeued for each aggregate, while the aggregate is in service, does not exceed the maximum budget budgetmax assigned to the aggregate. For each aggregate, budgetmax is proportional to the number of classes in the aggregate. If the number of classes of the aggregate is decreased through qfq_change_class(), then budgetmax is decreased automatically as well. Problems may occur if the aggregate is in service when budgetmax is decreased, because the current remaining budget of the aggregate and/or the service already received by the aggregate may happen to be larger than the new value of budgetmax. In this case, when the aggregate is eventually deselected and its timestamps are updated, the aggregate may happen to have received an amount of service larger than budgetmax. This may cause the aggregate to be assigned a higher virtual finish time than the maximum acceptable value for the last bucket in the bucket list of the group. This fix introduces a cap that addresses this issue. Signed-off-by: Paolo Valente <paolo.valente@unimore.it> Reviewed-by: Fabio Checconi <fchecconi@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
