Subject[PATCH 4.19 75/81] tracing/hwlat: Dont ignore outer-loop duration when calculating max_latency
Date
From: Srivatsa S. Bhat (VMware) <srivatsa@csail.mit.edu>

commit fc64e4ad80d4b72efce116f87b3174f0b7196f8e upstream.

max_latency is intended to record the maximum ever observed hardware
latency, which may occur in either part of the loop (inner/outer). So
we need to also consider the outer-loop sample when updating
max_latency.
