sched: Avoid throttle_cfs_rq() racing with period_timer stopping
commit f9f9ffc237dd924f048204e8799da74f9ecf40cf upstream. throttle_cfs_rq() doesn't check to make sure that period_timer is running, and while update_curr/assign_cfs_runtime does, a concurrently running period_timer on another cpu could cancel itself between this cpu's update_curr and throttle_cfs_rq(). If there are no other cfs_rqs running in the tg to restart the timer, this causes the cfs_rq to be stranded forever. Fix this by calling __start_cfs_bandwidth() in throttle if the timer is inactive. (Also add some sched_debug lines for cfs_bandwidth.) Tested: make a run/sleep task in a cgroup, loop switching the cgroup between 1ms/100ms quota and unlimited, checking for timer_active=0 and throttled=1 as a failure. With the throttle_cfs_rq() change commented out this fails, with the full patch it passes.
