Subject[PATCH v6 0/4] Early boot time stamps for x86
Date
changelog
---------
v5 - v6
- Added a new patch:
time: sync read_boot_clock64() with persistent clock
Which fixes missing __init macro, and enabled time discrepancy
fix that was noted by Thomas Gleixner
- Split "x86/time: read_boot_clock64() implementation" into a
separate patch
v4 - v5 - Fix compiler warnings on systems with stable clocks.
v3 - v4
- Fixed tsc_early_fini() call to be in the 2nd patch as reported
by Dou Liyang
- Improved comment before __use_sched_clock_early to explain why
we need both booleans.
- Simplified valid_clock logic in read_boot_clock64().

v2 - v3
- Addressed comment from Thomas Gleixner
- Timestamps are available a little later in boot but still much
earlier than in mainline. This significantly simplified this
work.
v1 - v2
In patch "x86/tsc: tsc early":
- added tsc_adjusted_early()
- fixed 32-bit compile error use do_div()

Adding early boot time stamps support for x86 machines.
SPARC patches for early boot time stamps are already integrated into
mainline linux.

Sample output

Before:

After:

For more exaples how early time stamps are used, see this work:
https://lwn.net/Articles/732233/

As seen above, currently timestamps are available from around the time when
"Security Framework" is initialized. But, 26s already passed until we
reached to this point.
