Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 26496
top CPU idle format incorrect

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)
Using a dual processor configuration with Linux SMP during full processor
utilitization, CPU state idle shows negative values in the form '0.-1%'
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run two instances of setiathome so both CPU's are fully utilized
2. Observe CPU0 and CPU1 idle states
Actual Results: CPU0 and CPU1 states will mostly show 0.0% idle, but
occassionally show 0.-1% idle.
Expected Results: Wouldn't expect to see negative idle values, but if
such a value is valid, should be -0.1% instead of 0.-1%.
top, uptime and ps do not show up in BugZilla's component list, so I
posted this under 'mysterious'.
This is no longer an issue with the 2.4.x kernel and Red Hat 7.1
