sched: do not use cpu_to_node() to find an offlined cpu's node.
If a cpu is offline, its nid will be set to -1, and cpu_to_node(cpu) will return -1. As a result, cpumask_of_node(nid) will return NULL. In this case, find_next_bit() in for_each_cpu will get a NULL pointer and cause panic. Here is a call trace: Call Trace: <IRQ> select_fallback_rq+0x71/0x190 try_to_wake_up+0x2cb/0x2f0 wake_up_process+0x15/0x20 hrtimer_wakeup+0x22/0x30 __run_hrtimer+0x83/0x320 hrtimer_interrupt+0x106/0x280 smp_apic_timer_interrupt+0x69/0x99 apic_timer_interrupt+0x6f/0x80 There is a hrtimer process sleeping, whose cpu has already been offlined. When it is waken up, it tries to find another cpu to run, and get a -1 nid. As a result, cpumask_of_node(-1) returns NULL, and causes ernel panic. This patch fixes this problem by judging if the nid is -1. If nid is not -1, a cpu on the same node will be picked. Else, a online cpu on another node will be picked.
