Subject[PATCH] sched/fair: don't NUMA balance for kthreads
Date
Stefano reported a crash with using SQPOLL with io_uring:

which is task_numa_work() oopsing on current->mm being NULL. The task
work is queued by task_tick_numa(), which checks if current->mm is NULL
at the time of the call. But this state isn't necessarily persistent,
if the kthread is using use_mm() to temporarily adopt the mm of a task.

Change the task_tick_numa() check to exclude kernel threads in general,
as it doesn't make sense to attempt ot balance for kthreads anyway.

This should go into 5.7 imho
