    Hmm, I don't think I actually changed any lock nesting/dependencies. Did I ?
    Oh, I see rebuild_sched_domains() is now called from cpuset hotplug handler.
    I just looked at the comment for rebuild_sched_domains() and it says
    " * Call with cgroup_mutex held. ..." that's why I thought it's safe and it
    worked on the test stations.

    Anyway, we need definitely need to make rebuild_sched_domains() work from the
    hotplug handler.

    That'd be exactly the same as calling rebuild_sched_domains() outside of the
    cgroup_lock(). So I do not think it'll help. Paul has more info in his reply
    so I'll reply to his email.
