Subject: [PATCH] KVM: X86: Limit timer frequency with more smaller interval
Date: Sun, 29 Apr 2018 19:38:20 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1525055900-20729-1-git-send-email-wanpengli@tencent.com> (raw)

From: Wanpeng Li <wanpengli@tencent.com>

Anthoine reported:
 The period used by Windows change over time but it can be 1 milliseconds
 or less. I saw the limit_periodic_timer_frequency print so 500
 microseconds is sometimes reached.

This patchs limits timer frequency with more smaller interval 200ms(5000Hz) 
to leave some headroom as Paolo suggested since Windows 10 changed the 
scheduler tick limit from 1024 Hz to 2048 Hz.
