SubjectRe: Crash in list_add_leaf_cfs_rq due to bad tmp_alone_branch

This was somehow expected because the unused cfs_rq are not removed
anymore but at least the list is correctly ordered with my patch.
the official version of this patch is there: https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/2/4/121
Then, more patches have been queued that removed unused cfs_rq and
keep a correct list ordering: https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/2/6/499

With these 3 patches, the slowdown should disappear and the list
ordering will stay correct

Regards,
Vincent
