Subject[PATCH] sched/deadline: Fix switched_from_dl
Date
Mark noticed that syzkaller is able to reliably trigger the following

dl_rq->running_bw > dl_rq->this_bw
WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 153 at kernel/sched/deadline.c:124 switched_from_dl+0x454/0x608

syzkaller reproducer runs a bunch of threads that constantly switch
between DEADLINE and NORMAL classes while interacting through futexes.

The splat above is caused by the fact that if a DEADLINE task is setattr
back to NORMAL while in non_contending state (blocked on a futex -
inactive timer armed), its contribution to running_bw is not removed
before sub_rq_bw() gets called (!task_on_rq_queued() branch) and the
latter sees running_bw > this_bw.

Fix it by removing a task contribution from running_bw if the task is
not queued and in non_contending state while switched to a different
class.
