sched: Guarantee new group-entities always have weight
commit 0ac9b1c21874d2490331233b3242085f8151e166 upstream. Currently, group entity load-weights are initialized to zero. This admits some races with respect to the first time they are re-weighted in earlty use. ( Let g[x] denote the se for "g" on cpu "x". ) Suppose that we have root->a and that a enters a throttled state, immediately followed by a[0]->t1 (the only task running on cpu[0]) blocking: put_prev_task(group_cfs_rq(a[0]), t1) put_prev_entity(..., t1) check_cfs_rq_runtime(group_cfs_rq(a[0])) throttle_cfs_rq(group_cfs_rq(a[0])) Then, before unthrottling occurs, let a[0]->b[0]->t2 wake for the first time: enqueue_task_fair(rq[0], t2) enqueue_entity(group_cfs_rq(b[0]), t2) enqueue_entity_load_avg(group_cfs_rq(b[0]), t2) account_entity_enqueue(group_cfs_ra(b[0]), t2) update_cfs_shares(group_cfs_rq(b[0])) < skipped because b is part of a throttled hierarchy > enqueue_entity(group_cfs_rq(a[0]), b[0]) ... We now have b[0] enqueued, yet group_cfs_rq(a[0])->load.weight == 0 which violates invariants in several code-paths. Eliminate the possibility of this by initializing group entity weight.
