Hi Don,

I tried to repro using qemu, but did not generate a lockup. Could you
provide more details on what your script is doing (or better yet,
share the script directly)? I would have expected you to potentially
hit a lockup if you were cycling sched_core being enabled and
disabled, but it sounds like you are just recreating the cookie for a
process group over and over?
