Subject[PATCH 3.11 090/128] cpuset,mempolicy: fix sleeping function called from invalid context
Date
3.11.10.14 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Gu Zheng <guz.fnst@cn.fujitsu.com>

commit 391acf970d21219a2a5446282d3b20eace0c0d7a upstream.

When runing with the kernel(3.15-rc7+), the follow bug occurs:
[ 9969.258987] BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/locking/mutex.c:586

The cause is that cpuset_mems_allowed() try to take
mutex_lock(&callback_mutex) under the rcu_read_lock(which was hold in
__mpol_dup()). And in cpuset_mems_allowed(), the access to cpuset is
under rcu_read_lock, so in __mpol_dup, we can reduce the rcu_read_lock
protection region to protect the access to cpuset only in
current_cpuset_is_being_rebound(). So that we can avoid this bug.

This patch is a temporary solution that just addresses the bug
mentioned above, can not fix the long-standing issue about cpuset.mems
rebinding on fork():

"When the forker's task_struct is duplicated (which includes
->mems_allowed) and it races with an update to cpuset_being_rebound
in update_tasks_nodemask() then the task's mems_allowed doesn't get
updated. And the child task's mems_allowed can be wrong if the
cpuset's nodemask changes before the child has been added to the
cgroup's tasklist."
