    Subject[PATCH 3/3] sched: fix cgroup movement of waking process
    There is a small race between try_to_wake_up() and sched_move_task(),
    which is trying to move the process being woken up.

    try_to_wake_up() on CPU0 sched_move_task() on CPU1
    --------------------------------+---------------------------------
    raw_spin_lock_irqsave(p->pi_lock)
    task_waking_fair()
    ->p.se.vruntime -= cfs_rq->min_vruntime
    ttwu_queue()
    ->send reschedule IPI to CPU1
    raw_spin_unlock_irqsave(p->pi_lock)
    task_rq_lock()
    -> tring to aquire both p->pi_lock and
    rq->lock with IRQ disabled
    task_move_group_fair()
    -> p.se.vruntime
    -= (old)cfs_rq->min_vruntime
    += (new)cfs_rq->min_vruntime
    task_rq_unlock()

    (via IPI)
    sched_ttwu_pending()
    raw_spin_lock(rq->lock)
    ttwu_do_activate()
    ...
    enqueue_entity()
    child.se->vruntime += cfs_rq->min_vruntime
    raw_spin_unlock(rq->lock)

    As a result, vruntime of the process becomes far bigger than min_vruntime,
    if (new)cfs_rq->min_vruntime >> (old)cfs_rq->min_vruntime.

    This patch fixes this problem by just ignoring such process in
    task_move_group_fair(), because the vruntime has already been normalized in
    task_waking_fair().
