Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 142792
POSIX needs support for thread and process CPU time clocks in clock_* and timer_* syscalls
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
The kernel's clock_* and timer_* interfaces need to be extended to support
clocks and timers tracking the CPU time used by processes and threads.
This is required for proper implementation of the _POSIX_CPUTIME and
_POSIX_THREAD_CPUTIME options at user-level.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tracking bug for upstream work.
Created attachment 108494 [details]
patch posted upstream for clock_* calls to support CPU clocks
Created attachment 108495 [details]
patch posted upstream to add CPU clock support to timer_* syscalls
This patch follows on the cpuclocks patch to add the timer part of the support.
My changes are in Linus's tree now, hopefully in 2.6.12
Rawhide 2.6.12rcN kernels have this.
All good in FC4.
