SubjectRe: [PATCH] Force processes to non-realtime before mm_exit

So I'm not too sure.. SCHED_FIFO/RR are a complete trainwreck and
provide absolutely no isolation from badly behaving tasks what so ever,
so I'm not too inclined to protect them from exit either, its just one
more way in which they can cause pain.

But aside from the, the patch has issues..

That only does half a job. You forget about SCHED_DEADLINE and negative
nice tasks.

Something like the below perhaps... But yeah, unconvinced.
