Subject[PATCH v2 1/2] cgroup: fix psi monitor for root cgroup
Date
Fix NULL pointer dereference when adding new psi monitor to the root
cgroup. PSI files for root cgroup was introduced in df5ba5be742 by using
system wide psi struct when reading, but file write/monitor was not
properly fixed. Since the PSI config for the root cgroup isn't
initialized, the current implementation tries to lock a NULL ptr,
resulting in a crash.

Can be triggered by running this as root:
$ tee /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu.pressure <<< "some 10000 1000000"
