So now that you rely on TASK_ON_RQ_MIGRATING; I think you missed one
place that can migrate sched_fair tasks and doesn't set it.

Olav recently did a patch adding TASK_ON_RQ_MIGRATING to _every_
migration path, but that is (still) somewhat overkill. With your changes
we need it for sched_fair though.

So I think you need to change __migrate_swap_task(), which is used by
the NUMA scheduling to swap two running tasks.

Also, it might be prudent to extend the CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG ifdef in
set_task_cpu() to test for this new requirement:

WARN_ON_ONCE(p->state == TASK_RUNNING &&
p->class == &fair_sched_class &&
p->on_rq != TASK_ON_RQ_MIGRATING);

So I get that you want to avoid emitting code for !SCHEDSTATS; but that
is rather unreadable. Either use the GCC stmt-expr or wrap the lot in
#ifdef.

Maybe add a comment that we adjust the wait_start time-base and will
rebase on the new rq_clock in update_stats_wait_start().
