Handle multiple clock ticks in sched_clock()

Authored by jeff on Sun, Dec 1, 8:42 PM.



This was one optimization from

It is relatively straightforward in ULE to handle a long set of idle ticks without looping. I did not attempt to do so for 4bsd. This also gives an early return for idlethread because it does not need interactivity or priority adjustments. It does run the percent cpu calculator.

Looks same to me. The only macro difference is dropping the idle thread check. Is that intended? Is so, is it safe?

This comment is slightly wrong, we don't update the index once per tick.

It is moved earlier. The change is a no-op since PRI_BASE(td->td_pri_class) != PRI_TIMESHARE for an idle thread.
