SubjectRe: Lockdep splat in cpuset code acquiring alloc_lock
From
Looks like select_fallback_rq() shouldn't be calling
cpuset_cpus_allowed_locked(), which does a task_lock(), which isn't
IRQ safe. Also, according to its comments that should only be held
with the cpuset callback_mutex held, which seems unlikely from a
softirq handler.

Also, calling cpuset_cpus_allowed_locked(p, &p->cpus_allowed) stomps
on state in p without (AFAICS) synchronization.

The description of commit e76bd8d9850c2296a7e8e24c9dce9b5e6b55fe2f
includes the phrase " I'm fairly sure this works, but there might be a
deadlock hiding" although I think that the lockdep-reported problem is
different than what Rusty had in mind.
