time based tests go to lunch on some hardware

If the following code doesn't occupy any user time, similar to shown

time seq 0 100000000 >/dev/null

real    0m1.367s
user    0m0.000s
sys     0m1.009s

Then your kernel is doing time accounting wrong.

You might need any of the above reconfigured

  • RCU
  • Things relating to NOHZ
  • ClockSources
