cpuset: fix possible deadlock in async_rebuild_sched_domains
Lockdep reported some possible circular locking info when we tested cpuset on NUMA/fake NUMA box. ======================================================= [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ] 2.6.29-rc1-00224-ga652504 #111 ------------------------------------------------------- bash/2968 is trying to acquire lock: (events){--..}, at: [<ffffffff8024c8cd>] flush_work+0x24/0xd8 but task is already holding lock: (cgroup_mutex){--..}, at: [<ffffffff8026ad1e>] cgroup_lock_live_group+0x12/0x29 which lock already depends on the new lock. ...... ------------------------------------------------------- Steps to reproduce: # mkdir /dev/cpuset # mount -t cpuset xxx /dev/cpuset # mkdir /dev/cpuset/0 # echo 0 > /dev/cpuset/0/cpus # echo 0 > /dev/cpuset/0/mems # echo 1 > /dev/cpuset/0/memory_migrate # cat /dev/zero > /dev/null & # echo $! > /dev/cpuset/0/tasks This is because async_rebuild_sched_domains has the following lock sequence: run_workqueue(async_rebuild_sched_domains) -> do_rebuild_sched_domains -> cgroup_lock But, attaching tasks when memory_migrate is set has following: cgroup_lock_live_group(cgroup_tasks_write) -> do_migrate_pages -> flush_work This patch fixes it by using a separate workqueue thread.
