SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] do_exit(): Solve possibility of BUG() due to race with try_to_wake_up()

One more problem with task_dead just to mention it here.

Below is racy with the change of sched_class:

if (prev->sched_class->task_dead)

switched_from_dl() does not cancel running timers.

So, if dl_task_timer() is slow (it is unhappy with rq->lock acquiring),
the timer is executing when tasks is already dead.
