Subject[PATCH 3.19 046/101] sched: Fix RLIMIT_RTTIME when PI-boosting to RT
Date
3.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Brian Silverman <brian@peloton-tech.com>

commit 746db9443ea57fd9c059f62c4bfbf41cf224fe13 upstream.

When non-realtime tasks get priority-inheritance boosted to a realtime
scheduling class, RLIMIT_RTTIME starts to apply to them. However, the
counter used for checking this (the same one used for SCHED_RR
timeslices) was not getting reset. This meant that tasks running with a
non-realtime scheduling class which are repeatedly boosted to a realtime
one, but never block while they are running realtime, eventually hit the
timeout without ever running for a time over the limit. This patch
resets the realtime timeslice counter when un-PI-boosting from an RT to
a non-RT scheduling class.

I have some test code with two threads and a shared PTHREAD_PRIO_INHERIT
mutex which induces priority boosting and spins while boosted that gets
killed by a SIGXCPU on non-fixed kernels but doesn't with this patch
applied. It happens much faster with a CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT kernel, and
does happen eventually with PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY kernels.
