Merge branch 'sched-core-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip

* 'sched-core-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (40 commits)
sched/tracing: Add a new tracepoint for sleeptime
sched: Disable scheduler warnings during oopses
sched: Fix cgroup movement of waking process
sched: Fix cgroup movement of newly created process
sched: Fix cgroup movement of forking process
sched: Remove cfs bandwidth period check in tg_set_cfs_period()
sched: Fix load-balance lock-breaking
sched: Replace all_pinned with a generic flags field
sched: Only queue remote wakeups when crossing cache boundaries
sched: Add missing rcu_dereference() around ->real_parent usage
[S390] fix cputime overflow in uptime_proc_show
[S390] cputime: add sparse checking and cleanup
sched: Mark parent and real_parent as __rcu
sched, nohz: Fix missing RCU read lock
sched, nohz: Set the NOHZ_BALANCE_KICK flag for idle load balancer
sched, nohz: Fix the idle cpu check in nohz_idle_balance

usecs_to_cputime64() vs the sparse cleanups
- kernel/sched/fair.c, kernel/time/tick-sched.c
scheduler changes in multiple branches
