> sched: Migrate waking tasks
>
> Current code can fail to migrate a waking task (silently) when TTWU_QUEUE is
> enabled.
>
> When a task is waking, it is pending on the wake_list of the rq, but it is not
> queued (task->on_rq == 0). In this case, set_cpus_allowed_ptr() and
> __migrate_task() will not migrate it because its invisible to them.
>
> This behavior is incorrect, because the task has been already woken, it will be
> running on the wrong CPU without correct placement until the next wake-up or
> update for cpus_allowed.
>
> To fix this problem, we need to finish the wakeup (so they appear on
> the runqueue) before we migrate them.

It looks like we do not need this hunk, because IPI happens earlier then
stop class begins migration_cpu_stop() execution.

In the first hunk the check "p->state == TASK_WAKING" is under pi_lock,
so if the task is really waking then the IPI is already set.

So, the first hunk is enough here, the second is not need.
