Yeah.. so I can (and was planning on) remove stop_machine() from
sched_core_{dis,en}able() before merging it.

(there's two options, one uses stop_cpus() with the SMT mask, the other
RCU)

This though is exposing stop_machine() to joe user. Everybody is allowed
to prctl() it's own task and set a cookie on himself. This means you
just made giant unpriv DoS vector.

stop_machine is bad, really bad.
