Even if I dropped the bits for allowing !root users, this critical point
still remains.
What if I leave this like it is and instead I do the following?

@@ -488,9 +488,10 @@ static enum hrtimer_restart dl_task_timer(struct hrtimer *timer)
* We need to take care of a possible races here. In fact, the
* task might have changed its scheduling policy to something
- * different from SCHED_DEADLINE (through sched_setscheduler()).
+ * different from SCHED_DEADLINE or changed its reservation
+ * parameters (through sched_{setscheduler(),setscheduler2()}).
- if (!dl_task(p))
+ if (!dl_task(p) || dl_se->dl_new)
goto unlock;

dl_se->dl_throttled = 0;

The idea is that hrtimer_try_to_cancel should fail only if the callback routine
is running. If, meanwhile, I set up new parameters, I can try to recognize this
situation through dl_new (set to 1 during __setparam_dl).

BTW, I'd have a new version ready (also rebased on the current tip/master). It
address all the comments excluding your gcc work-around, math128 and
nr_cpus_allowed shift (patches are ready but those changes not yet mainline,
right?). Anyway, do you think would be fine to post it?

Thanks and Regards,

- Juri
