Subject[PATCH 4.14 18/53] cgroup: Use css_tryget() instead of css_tryget_online() in task_get_css()
Date
From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

commit 18fa84a2db0e15b02baa5d94bdb5bd509175d2f6 upstream.

A PF_EXITING task can stay associated with an offline css. If such
task calls task_get_css(), it can get stuck indefinitely. This can be
triggered by BSD process accounting which writes to a file with
PF_EXITING set when racing against memcg disable as in the backtrace
at the end.

After this change, task_get_css() may return a css which was already
offline when the function was called. None of the existing users are
affected by this change.
