Subject: [PATCH 5.0 26/89] sched/numa: Fix a possible divide-by-zero

From: Xie XiuQi <xiexiuqi@...wei.com>

commit a860fa7b96e1a1c974556327aa1aee852d434c21 upstream.

sched_clock_cpu() may not be consistent between CPUs. If a task
migrates to another CPU, then se.exec_start is set to that CPU's
rq_clock_task() by update_stats_curr_start(). Specifically, the new
value might be before the old value due to clock skew.

So then if in numa_get_avg_runtime() the expression:

  'now - p->last_task_numa_placement'

ends up as -1, then the divider '*period + 1' in task_numa_placement()
is 0 and things go bang. Similar to update_curr(), check if time goes
backwards to avoid this.

[ peterz: Wrote new changelog. ]
[ mingo: Tweaked the code comment. ]
