There is no 64-bit version of getitimer/setitimer since that is not
actually needed. However, the implementation is built around the
deprecated 'struct timeval' type.

Change the code to use timespec64 internally to reduce the dependencies
on timeval and associated helper functions.

Minor adjustments in the code are needed to make the native and compat
version work the same way, and to keep the range check working after
the conversion.

Hmm, having a division in a tracepoint is clearly suboptimal.

We print only 6 digits after the . so that would be even correct w/o a
division. But it probably does not matter much.

Hrm, why do we have yet another incarnation of timeval_valid()? Can we
please have only one (the inline version)?

Thanks,

Right, we should move the division into the TP_printk()

Well, we still need the division in the printk, otherwise it will print
more than 6. That's just the minimum and it will print the full number.


		__entry->interval_nsec / NSEC_PER_USEC

That's fine. The print is not really timing critical, the tracepoint very
much so.

Ok, moving it to the TP_printk() as Steven suggested.

This is just a cosmetic fix, it can be a separate patch if you care. The idea
is to print the numbers as normal decimal representation, e.g. 0.001000
for a millisecond instead of the nonstandard 0.1000.

No idea, you have to ask the author of commit 7d99b7d634d8 ("[PATCH]
Validate and
sanitze itimer timeval from userspace") ;-)

> Can we please have only one (the inline version)?


I'm removing the inline version in a later patch along with most of the rest of
include/linux/time32.h.

Having the macro version is convenient for this patch, since I'm using it
on two different structures (itimerval/__kernel_old_timeval and
old_itimerval32/old_timeval32), neither of which is the type used in the
inline function.

I could use two local inline functions instead of the macro, or just open
code both call sites if you prefer that.

This is now off by a factor of 1000.  It might be helpful to use
NSEC_PER_SEC / 2 here so no-one has to count the 0 digits.
