Subject[PATCH v3] 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, set the min limit of sysctl_sched_time_avg
to 1 ms.

v2: Check it at user input side in sysctl table (peterz).
v3: Use proc_dointvec_minmax().
