netikras1640515dSO says that CPU_CLOCK version is broken and should not be used. CPU_CLOCK was intended to be used as wall-clock (the amount of time the task was hanging around in the tasks list), and the TASK_CLOCK should show how long has that task been in RUNNING state (i.e. being actually processed).
The example with `sleep 1` is very clear IMO.
TBH I'd name them the other way around. That might be more intuitive: CPU_CL being the CPU time spent on the task and TASK_CL - amount of time the task was lurking in the tasks list.
halfflat155315d@netikras I've read that SO answer, and I'm sure it's a part-answer, or is a complete-at-some-point-in-time answer. There are mailing list posts that contradict it, or at least, may reflect what the event meant at a different point in time.
I think the only way to be sure is to read the kernel source (for a version one cares about) and work backwards.
