Subject[PATCH v4.4.y] sched/cgroup: Move sched_online_group() back into css_online() to fix crash
Date
From: Konstantin Khlebnikov <khlebnikov@yandex-team.ru>

commit 96b777452d8881480fd5be50112f791c17db4b6b upstream.

Commit:

2f5177f0fd7e ("sched/cgroup: Fix/cleanup cgroup teardown/init")

.. moved sched_online_group() from css_online() to css_alloc().
It exposes half-baked task group into global lists before initializing
generic cgroup stuff.

LTP testcase (third in cgroup_regression_test) written for testing
similar race in kernels 2.6.26-2.6.28 easily triggers this oops:

Here the task group is already linked into the global RCU-protected 'task_groups'
list, but the css->cgroup pointer is still NULL.

This patch reverts this chunk and moves online back to css_online().
