Subject[PATCH tip/core/urgent 04/10] cgroup: Fix an RCU warning in cgroup_path()
Date
From: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com>

with CONFIG_PROVE_RCU=y, a warning can be triggered:

# mount -t cgroup -o debug xxx /mnt
# cat /proc/$$/cgroup

...
kernel/cgroup.c:1649 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection!
...

This is a false-positive, because cgroup_path() can be called
with either rcu_read_lock() held or cgroup_mutex held.
