Subject[PATCH] sched/debug: initialize sd_sysctl_cpus if !CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK
From: Hidetoshi Seto <>

register_sched_domain_sysctl() copies the cpu_possible_mask into
sd_sysctl_cpus, but only if sd_sysctl_cpus hasn't already been
allocated (ie, CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK is set). However, when
CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK is not set, sd_sysctl_cpus is left uninitialized
(all zeroes) and the kernel may fail to initialize sched_domain sysctl
entries for all possible cpus.

This is visible to the user if the kernel is booted with maxcpus=n, or
if ACPI tables have been modified to leave cpus offline, and then
checking for missing /proc/sys/kernel/sched_domain/cpu* entries.

Fix this by separating the allocataion and initialization, and adding
a flag to initialize the possible cpu entries while system booting only.
