:Is it me or is top missing nice and interrupt percentage reporting?
:Jeroen Ruigrok van der Werven <asmodai(at)> / asmodai / kita no mono

    There is no interrupt percentage reporting because interrupts currently
    hold Giant, which prevents the clock interrupt from interrupting an
    interrupt, so there is no statistical accumulation of interrupt

    This will fix itself as interrupts are moved out of the MP lock in the
    next 6-12 months.
