Subject[PATCH v5 0/5] sched/deadline: fix cpusets bandwidth accounting
Date
Hi,

v5 of a series of patches, originally authored by Mathieu, with the intent
of fixing a long standing issue of SCHED_DEADLINE bandwidth accounting.
As originally reported by Steve [1], when hotplug and/or (certain)
cpuset reconfiguration operations take place, DEADLINE bandwidth
accounting information is lost since root domains are destroyed and
recreated.

Mathieu's approach is based on restoring bandwidth accounting info on
the newly created root domains by iterating through the (DEADLINE) tasks
belonging to the configured cpuset(s).

Main problem of v4 was caused by the trylocking of cpuset_mutex. As
noticed by Steve [2], if multiple tasks are created at they same time
only the first gets to grab the mutex, the other get -EBUSY and need to
retry. Not really nice. So, in v5 I'm proposing to use callback_lock
instead of cpuset_mutex, which AFAIU should be enough to grant read-only
safe access to cpusets.

01/05 has been dropped because it wasn't really adding much and was
only causing false positives.

05/05 is still too much DEADLINE specific I guess, but let's first agree
on foundations patches.

Thanks,
