Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] kthread, sched: Fix kthread_parkme() (again...)
Gaurav reports that commit:

85f1abe0019f ("kthread, sched/wait: Fix kthread_parkme() completion issue")

isn't working for him. Because of the following race:

> controller Thread CPUHP Thread
> takedown_cpu
> kthread_park
> kthread_parkme
> Set KTHREAD_SHOULD_PARK
> smpboot_thread_fn
> set Task interruptible
>
>
> wake_up_process
> if (!(p->state & state))
> goto out;
>
> Kthread_parkme
> SET TASK_PARKED
> schedule
> raw_spin_lock(&rq->lock)
> ttwu_remote
> waiting for __task_rq_lock
> context_switch
>
> finish_lock_switch
>
>
>
> Case TASK_PARKED
> kthread_park_complete
>
>
> SET Running

Furthermore, Oleg noticed that the whole scheduler TASK_PARKED
handling is buggered because the TASK_DEAD thing is done with
preemption disabled, the current code can still complete early on
preemption :/

So basically revert that earlier fix and go with a variant of the
alternative mentioned in the commit. Promote TASK_PARKED to special
state to avoid the store-store issue on task->state leading to the
WARN in kthread_unpark() -> __kthread_bind().

But in addition, add wait_task_inactive() to kthread_park() to ensure
the task really is PARKED when we return from kthread_park(). This
avoids the whole kthread still gets migrated nonsense -- although it
would be really good to get this done differently.
