Subject[PATCH] cgroup: Reinit cgroup_taskset structure before cgroup_migrate_execute() returns
Date
The cgroup_taskset structure within the larger cgroup_mgctx structure
is supposed to be used once and then discarded. That is not really the
case in the hotplug code path:

cpuset_hotplug_workfn()
- cgroup_transfer_tasks()
- cgroup_migrate()
- cgroup_migrate_add_task()
- cgroup_migrate_execute()

In this case, the cgroup_migrate() function is called multiple time
with the same cgroup_mgctx structure to transfer the tasks from
one cgroup to another one-by-one. The second time cgroup_migrate()
is called, the cgroup_taskset will be in an incorrect state and so
may cause the system to panic. For example,

To allow reuse of the cgroup_mgctx structure, some fields in that
structure are now re-initialized at the end of cgroup_migrate_execute()
function call so that the structure can be reused again in a later
iteration without causing problem.

This bug was introduced in the commit e595cd706982 ("group: track
migration context in cgroup_mgctx") in 4.11. This commit moves the
cgroup_taskset initialization out of cgroup_migrate(). The commit
10467270fb3 ("cgroup: don't call migration methods if there are no
tasks to migrate") helped, but did not completely resolve the problem.

Fixes: e595cd706982bff0211e6fafe5a108421e747fbc ("group: track migration context in cgroup_mgctx")
