This is fixed in 2.6.31 by: commit 27bf8712477db47c891e6198000c985631cd18de Author: Michael Abbott <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Mon Jun 22 12:19:25 2009 +0200 [PATCH] Fix idle time field in /proc/uptime Git commit 79741dd changes idle cputime accounting, but unfortunately the /proc/uptime file hasn't caught up. Here the idle time calculation from /proc/stat is copied over. Signed-off-by: Michael Abbott <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <firstname.lastname@example.org> We probably will not update 2.6.30 to fix this.
