Subject[PATCH] cgroup: Fix deadlock in cpu hotplug path
Date
Deadlock during cgroup migration from cpu hotplug path when a task T is
being moved from source to destination cgroup.

kworker/0:0
cpuset_hotplug_workfn()
cpuset_hotplug_update_tasks()
hotplug_update_tasks_legacy()
remove_tasks_in_empty_cpuset()
cgroup_transfer_tasks() // stuck in iterator loop
cgroup_migrate()
cgroup_migrate_add_task()

In cgroup_migrate_add_task() it checks for PF_EXITING flag of task T.
Task T will not migrate to destination cgroup. css_task_iter_start()
will keep pointing to task T in loop waiting for task T cg_list node
to be removed.

Task T
do_exit()
exit_signals() // sets PF_EXITING
exit_task_namespaces()
switch_task_namespaces()
free_nsproxy()
put_mnt_ns()
drop_collected_mounts()
namespace_unlock()
synchronize_rcu()
_synchronize_rcu_expedited()
schedule_work() // on cpu0 low priority worker pool
wait_event() // waiting for work item to execute

Task T inserted a work item in the worklist of cpu0 low priority
worker pool. It is waiting for expedited grace period work item
to execute. This work item will only be executed once kworker/0:0
complete execution of cpuset_hotplug_workfn().

kworker/0:0 ==> Task T ==>kworker/0:0

In case of PF_EXITING task being migrated from source to destination
cgroup, migrate next available task in source cgroup.
