Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] Selftest for cpuidle latency measurement

v1: https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/7/7/1036
Changelog v1 --> v2
1. Based on Shuah Khan's comment, changed exit code to ksft_skip to
   indicate the test is being skipped
2. Change the busy workload for baseline measurement from
   "yes > /dev/null" to "cat /dev/random to /dev/null", based on
   observed CPU utilization for "yes" consuming ~60% CPU while the
   latter consumes 100% of CPUs, giving more accurate baseline numbers
---

The patch series introduces a mechanism to measure wakeup latency for
IPI and timer based interrupts
The motivation behind this series is to find significant deviations
behind advertised latency and resisdency values

To achieve this, we introduce a kernel module and expose its control
knobs through the debugfs interface that the selftests can engage with.

The kernel module provides the following interfaces within
/sys/kernel/debug/latency_test/ for,
1. IPI test:
  ipi_cpu_dest   # Destination CPU for the IPI
  ipi_cpu_src    # Origin of the IPI
  ipi_latency_ns # Measured latency time in ns
2. Timeout test:
  timeout_cpu_src     # CPU on which the timer to be queued
  timeout_expected_ns # Timer duration
  timeout_diff_ns     # Difference of actual duration vs expected timer
To include the module, check option and include as module
kernel hacking -> Cpuidle latency selftests

The selftest inserts the module, disables all the idle states and
enables them one by one testing the following:
1. Keeping source CPU constant, iterates through all the CPUS measuring
   IPI latency for baseline (CPU is busy with
   "cat /dev/random > /dev/null" workload) and the when the CPU is
   allowed to be at rest
2. Iterating through all the CPUs, sending expected timer durations to
   be equivalent to the residency of the the deepest idle state
   enabled and extracting the difference in time between the time of
   wakeup and the expected timer duration

Usage
-----
Can be used in conjuction to the rest of the selftests.
Default Output location in: tools/testing/cpuidle/cpuidle.log

To run this test specifically:
$ make -C tools/testing/selftests TARGETS="cpuidle" run_tests

There are a few optinal arguments too that the script can take
	[-h <help>]
	[-m <location of the module>]
	[-o <location of the output>]
