    You aren't saying you don't know your own code?
    Specifically, it's local account_process_time() function being called 
instead of updated_process_times() with CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING option on.

    I'm not talking you into accepting it in any way, this is just to keep 
people informed.
    And I left people a choice: they can either have fancy accounting or HRT, 
just not both at once. What's wrong with that?
