Subject[PATCH 4/6] sched_exec: remove select_fallback_rq() logic
sched_exec()->select_task_rq() reads/updates ->cpus_allowed lockless.
This can race with other CPUs updating our ->cpus_allowed, and this
looks meaningless to me.

The task is current and running, it must have online cpus in ->cpus_allowed,
the fallback mode is bogus. And, if ->sched_class returns the "wrong" cpu,
this likely means we raced with set_cpus_allowed() which was called
for reason, why should sched_exec() retry and call ->select_task_rq()
again?

Change the code to call sched_class->select_task_rq() directly and do
nothing if the returned cpu is wrong after re-checking under rq->lock.

From now task_struct->cpus_allowed is always stable under TASK_WAKING,
select_fallback_rq() is always called under rq-lock or the caller or
the caller owns TASK_WAKING (select_task_rq).
