I ran some tests with your patchset, and I confirm that it fixes the
issue originally pointed out by Steven.

But I still need to run some more tests (I'll continue on Monday).

I think I found an issue by:
1) creating two disjoint cpusets (CPUs 0 and 1 in the first cpuset,
CPUs 2 and 3 in the second one) and setting sched_load_balance to 0
2) starting a task in one of the two cpusets, and making it
SCHED_DEADLINE <--- up to here, everything looks fine
3) setting sched_load_balance to 1 <--- At this point, I think there is
a bug: the system has only one root domain, and the task utilization
is summed to it... But the task affinity mask is still the one of
the "old root domain" that was associated with the cpuset where the
task is executing.

I still need to run some experiments about this.
