-mainline changed the qdisc from a simple bit to a seqcount; this causes
a splat from migrate_enable, but I didn't initially see that since the
sanity check relies on SCHED_DEBUG=y. This causes the -rt patch that
faked out the lock status to splat; further details are at

No point in anyone else having to redo the root cause research on this a
second time; I've updated the above repo for this and for some other mm
fallout from 4.8-rc7 in memcontrol.c so that the patches will apply for
what inevitably becomes v4.8 final in a couple hours.

That said, my original comments still apply -- this remains as a resource
for developers who track the -rt progress, and how mainline will impact
it. The release of 4.8 in mainline does not somehow change this repo
into a stable/supported -rt release by osmosis. If you don't regularly
manually apply and test patches, including resolving sleeping while
atomic kernel backtrace dumps, you probably should not be using this.
