Subject[PATCH] cpuset: Enforce that a child's cpus must be a subset of the parent
Date
It was found that the cpuset.cpus could contain CPUs that are not listed
in their parent's cpu list as shown by the command sequence below:

# echo "+cpuset" >cgroup.subtree_control
# mkdir g1
# echo 0-5 >g1/cpuset.cpus
# mkdir g1/g11
# echo "+cpuset" > g1/cgroup.subtree_control
# echo 6-11 >g1/g11/cpuset.cpus
# grep -R . g1 | grep "\.cpus"
g1/cpuset.cpus:0-5
g1/cpuset.cpus.effective:0-5
g1/g11/cpuset.cpus:6-11
g1/g11/cpuset.cpus.effective:0-5

As the intersection of g11's cpus and that of g1 is empty, the effective
cpus of g11 is just that of g1. The check in update_cpumask() is now
corrected to make sure that cpus in a child cpus must be a subset of
its parent's cpus. The error "write error: Invalid argument" will now
be reported in the above case.
