Subject[PATCH V3 04/10] sched/core: Prevent race condition between cpuset and __sched_setscheduler()
Date
No synchronisation mechanism exist between the cpuset subsystem and calls
to function __sched_setscheduler(). As such it is possible that new root
domains are created on the cpuset side while a deadline acceptance test
is carried out in __sched_setscheduler(), leading to a potential oversell
of CPU bandwidth.

By making available the cpuset_mutex to the core scheduler it is possible
to prevent situations such as the one described above from happening.
