Subject[PATCH] sched/fair: initialize throttle_count for new task-groups lazily
From
Date
Cgroup created inside throttled group must inherit current throttle_count.
Broken throttle_count allows to nominate throttled entries as a next buddy,
later this leads to null pointer dereference in pick_next_task_fair().

This patch initialize cfs_rq->throttle_count at first enqueue: laziness
allows to skip locking all rq at group creation. Lazy approach also allows
to skip full sub-tree scan at throttling hierarchy (not in this patch).
