Subject[PATCH] cgroup: use irqsave in cgroup_rstat_flush_locked()
All callers of cgroup_rstat_flush_locked() acquire cgroup_rstat_lock
either with spin_lock_irq() or spin_lock_irqsave().
cgroup_rstat_flush_locked() itself acquires cgroup_rstat_cpu_lock which
is a raw_spin_lock. This lock is also acquired in cgroup_rstat_updated()
in IRQ context and therefore requires _irqsave() locking suffix in
Since there is no difference between spin_lock_t and raw_spin_lock_t
on !RT lockdep does not complain here. On RT lockdep complains because
the interrupts were not disabled here and a deadlock is possible.

Acquire the raw_spin_lock_t with disabled interrupts.
