Subject[RFC PATCH 1/2] sched/update_avg: avoid negative time
Date
rq->avg_idle try to reflect the average idle time between the cpu idle
and first wakeup. But in the function, it maybe get a negative value
if old avg_idle is too small. Then this negative value will be double
counted in next time calculation. Guess that is not the original purpose,
so recalibrate it to zero.
