Argh, sorry for that!

Not quite the same, current can still get migrated to another cpu than
env->src_cpu, at which point we can still end up selecting ourselves.

How about the below instead, that is pretty much the old patch, but with
a nice comment.

Subject: sched, numa: Avoid selecting oneself as swap target
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>
Date: Mon Nov 10 10:54:35 CET 2014

Because the whole numa task selection stuff runs with preemption
enabled (its long and expensive) we can end up migrating and selecting
oneself as a swap target. This doesn't really work out well -- we end
up trying to acquire the same lock twice for the swap migrate -- so
avoid this.
