timekeeping: Fix __ktime_get_fast_ns() regression
commit 58bfea9532552d422bde7afa207e1a0f08dffa7d upstream. In commit 27727df240c7 ("Avoid taking lock in NMI path with CONFIG_DEBUG_TIMEKEEPING"), I changed the logic to open-code the timekeeping_get_ns() function, but I forgot to include the unit conversion from cycles to nanoseconds, breaking the function's output, which impacts users like perf. This results in bogus perf timestamps like: swapper 0 [000] 253.427536: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.426573: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.426687: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.426800: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.426905: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.427022: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.427127: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.427239: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.427346: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 254.427463: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 255.426572: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) Instead of more reasonable expected timestamps like: swapper 0 [000] 39.953768: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.064839: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.175956: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.287103: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.398217: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.509324: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.620437: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.731546: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.842654: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 40.953772: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) swapper 0 [000] 41.064881: 111111111 cpu-clock: ffffffff810a0de6 native_safe_halt+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms]) Add the proper use of timekeeping_delta_to_ns() to convert the cycle delta to nanoseconds as needed. Thanks to Brendan and Alexei for finding this quickly after the v4.8 release. Unfortunately the problematic commit has landed in some -stable trees so they'll need this fix as well. Many apologies for this mistake. I'll be looking to add a perf-clock sanity test to the kselftest timers tests soon.
