Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] x86, msr: allow rdmsr_safe_on_cpu() to schedule
Date
I noticed high latencies caused by a daemon periodically reading
various MSR on all cpus. KASAN kernels would see ~10ms latencies
simply reading one MSR. Even without KASAN, sending IPI to CPU
in deep sleep state or blocking hard IRQ in a a long section,
then waiting for the answer can consume hundreds of usec.

Converts rdmsr_safe_on_cpu() to use a completion instead
of busy polling.

Overall daemon cpu usage was reduced by 35 %,
and latencies caused by msr_read() disappeared.
