Subject[PATCH] [138/223] sched: fix RCU lockdep splat from task_group()
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

commit 6506cf6ce68d78a5470a8360c965dafe8e4b78e3 upstream.

This addresses the following RCU lockdep splat:

[0.051203] CPU0: AMD QEMU Virtual CPU version 0.12.4 stepping 03
[0.052999] lockdep: fixing up alternatives.

[0.203089] #3 Ok.
[0.275286] Brought up 4 CPUs
[0.276005] Total of 4 processors activated (16017.17 BogoMIPS).

The cgroup_subsys_state structures referenced by idle tasks are never
freed, because the idle tasks should be part of the root cgroup,
which is not removable.

The problem is that while we do in-fact hold rq->lock, the newly spawned
idle thread's cpu is not yet set to the correct cpu so the lockdep check
in task_group():

lockdep_is_held(&task_rq(p)->lock)

will fail.

But this is a chicken and egg problem. Setting the CPU's runqueue requires
that the CPU's runqueue already be set. ;-)

So insert an RCU read-side critical section to avoid the complaint.
