Subject[PATCH] sched: fix migration to invalid cpu in __set_cpus_allowed_ptr
From: <>

reason: migration to invalid cpu in __set_cpus_allowed_ptr
archive path: patches/euleros/sched

Oops occur when running qemu on arm64:
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address ffff000008effe40
Internal error: Oops: 96000007 [#1] SMP
Process migration/0 (pid: 12, stack limit = 0x00000000084e3736)
pstate: 20000085 (nzCv daIf -PAN -UAO)
pc : __ll_sc___cmpxchg_case_acq_4+0x4/0x20
lr : move_queued_task.isra.21+0x124/0x298
Call trace:

__set_cpus_allowed_ptr will choose an active dest_cpu in affinity mask to migrage the process if process is not
currently running on any one of the CPUs specified in affinity mask.__set_cpus_allowed_ptr will choose an invalid
dest_cpu(>= nr_cpu_ids, 1024 in my virtual machine) if CPUS in affinity mask are deactived by cpu_down after
cpumask_intersects check.Cpumask_test_cpu of dest_cpu afterwards is overflow and may passes if corresponding bit
is coincidentally set.As a consequence, kernel will access a invalid rq address associate with the invalid cpu in
migration_cpu_stop->__migrate_task->move_queued_task and the Oops occurs. Process as follows may trigger the Oops:
1) A process repeatedly bind itself to cpu0 and cpu1 in turn by calling sched_setaffinity
2) A shell script repeatedly "echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online" and "echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online" in turn
3) Oops appears if the invalid cpu is set in memory after tested cpumask.
