Description

Dear DFLY Bugs,

I have noticed a bug on Avalon.dragonflybsd.org and also on
leaf.dragonflybsd.org where a:

ps -xgu

Shows certain processes consuming more than %100 CPU Usage which should be
impossible since the most a process can consume as a percentage should be
%100.

Also, when you start a cpu-bound process running it initially consumes e.g.
200% and then settles down to less.

Yea, this is this weird wcpu number. I think we should get rid of
displaying it altogether, I don't see any benefit in having it.

cheers

I agree. It's a derived number that either needs to be retooled or
removed.
