SubjectRe: [PATCH 19/25] sched/vite: Handle nice updates under vtime

Urgh, so this patch should be folded into the previous one. On their own
neither really makes sense.

*groan*... So what are the rules for vtime updates? Who can do that
when?

So when we change nice, we'll have the respective rq locked and task
effectively unqueued. It cannot schedule at such a point. Can
'concurrent' vtime updates still happen?

That's not sufficient; I think you want to hook set_load_weight() or
something. Things like sys_sched_setattr() can also change the nice
value.

What happens if you already had one pending? Do we loose updates?

That's _far_ too large for an inline I'm thinking. Also, changing nice
really isn't a fast path or anything.
