Subject[PATCH v2] sched: check user input value of sysctl_sched_time_avg
Date
System will hang if user set sysctl_sched_time_avg to 0 by

[root@XXX ~]# sysctl kernel.sched_time_avg_ms=0

Because divide-by-zero error happens in function

update_group_capacity()
update_cpu_capacity()
scale_rt_capacity()
{
...
total = sched_avg_period() + delta;
used = div_u64(avg, total);
...
}

Seems this issue could be reproduced on all I tried stable 4.1 - last
kernel.

To fix this issue, check user input value of sysctl_sched_time_avg, keep
it unchanged when hit invalid input.

v2: check it in sysctl table (input side) as Peter suggested.
Tested on stable 4.1, applied on stable 4.13-rc5 okay.
