* Functions to put limits on CPU consumption.
* This allows us to better catch runaway realtime processes that
* might otherwise hang the whole system.
* The process is basically this:
* - Set the CPU percentage limit with cl_cpu_limit_setpercent()
* according to what you expect the CPU percentage to top out at
* measured over an interval at >= 10 seconds
* - Call cl_cpu_limit_ms_interval() to figure out how often to update
* the CPU limit (it returns milliseconds)
* - At least as often as indicated above, call cl_cpu_limit_update()
* to update our current CPU limit.
* These limits are approximate, so be a little conservative.
* If you've gone into an infinite loop, it'll likely get caught ;-)
* Note that exceeding the soft CPU limits we set here will cause a
* SIGXCPU signal to be sent.
* The default action for this signal is to cause a core dump.
* This is a good choice ;-)
* As of this writing, this code will never set the soft CPU limit less
* than two seconds, or greater than 10 seconds.
* It will currrently return a limit update interval between 10000 and
* 400000 milliseconds.
* Set expected CPU percentage upper bound
int cl_cpu_limit_setpercent(int ipercent);
* Update the current CPU limit
* How often should we call cl_cpu_limit_update()?
* Note: return result is in milliseconds
