Subject[PATCH 1/2] cpuset: fix a locking issue in cpuset_migrate_mm()
I can trigger a lockdep warning:

# mount -t cgroup -o cpuset xxx /cgroup
# mkdir /cgroup/cpuset
# mkdir /cgroup/tmp
# echo 0 > /cgroup/tmp/cpuset.cpus
# echo 0 > /cgroup/tmp/cpuset.mems
# echo 1 > /cgroup/tmp/cpuset.memory_migrate
# echo $$ > /cgroup/tmp/tasks
# echo 1 > /cgruop/tmp/cpuset.mems

===============================
[ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ]
3.14.0-rc1-0.1-default+ #32 Not tainted
-------------------------------
include/linux/cgroup.h:682 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!
...
[<ffffffff81582174>] dump_stack+0x72/0x86
[<ffffffff810b8f01>] lockdep_rcu_suspicious+0x101/0x140
[<ffffffff81105ba1>] cpuset_migrate_mm+0xb1/0xe0
...

We used to hold cgroup_mutex when calling cpuset_migrate_mm(), but now
we hold cpuset_mutex, which causes task_css() to complain.

This is not a false-positive but a real issue.

Holding cpuset_mutex won't prevent a task's cpuset from changing, and
it won't prevent the original task->cgroup from destroying during this
change.

Fixes: 5d21cc2db040 (cpuset: replace cgroup_mutex locking with cpuset internal locking)
