SubjectBisected rcu hang (kernel/sched.c): was 2.6.33rc4 RCU hang mm spin_lock deadlock(?) after running libvirtd - reproducible.

I was finally able to bisect this to commit:
3802290628348674985d14914f9bfee7b9084548 (see below)

Libvirtd always triggers the crash; other things that fork and use mmap
sometimes do (vsftpd, for example).

sched: Fix sched_exec() balancing

Since we access ->cpus_allowed without holding rq->lock we need
a retry loop to validate the result, this comes for near free
when we merge sched_migrate_task() into sched_exec() since that
already does the needed check.
