Subject[PATCH 4/4 tip/sched/core] sched: implement force_cpus_allowed()
set_cpus_allowed_ptr() modifies the allowed cpu mask of a task.  The
function performs the following checks before applying new mask.

* Check whether PF_THREAD_BOUND is set. This is set for bound
kthreads so that they can't be moved around.

* Check whether the target cpu is still marked active - cpu_active().
Active state is cleared early while downing a cpu.

This patch adds force_cpus_allowed() which bypasses the above two
checks. The caller is responsible for guaranteeing that the
destination cpu doesn't go down until force_cpus_allowed() finishes.

The first check is bypassed by factoring out actual migration part
into __set_cpus_allowed() from set_cpus_allowed_ptr() and calling the
inner function from force_cpus_allowed().

The second check is buried deep down in __migrate_task() which is
executed by migration threads. @force parameter is added to
__migrate_task(). As the only way to pass parameters from
__set_cpus_allowed() is through migration_req, migration_req->force is
added and the @force parameter is passed down to __migrate_task().

Please note the naming discrepancy between set_cpus_allowed_ptr() and
the new functions. The _ptr suffix is from the days when cpumask api
wasn't mature and future changes should drop it from
set_cpus_allowed_ptr() too.

force_cpus_allowed() will be used for concurrency-managed workqueue.
