Problem: The kernel tries to figure out when a cpu entered idle by accessing its per-cpu data structure. There is an ordering problem: if a remote cpu has an idle_enter value which is not zero, and an idle_exit value which is zero, it is assumed it is idle since "now". The "now" timestamp however is taken before the idle_enter value is read. This in turn means that "now" can be smaller than idle_enter of the remote cpu. Unconditionally subtracting idle_enter from "now" can thus lead to a negative value (aka large unsigned value). Solution: Move the get_tod_clock() invocation.
