blkcg: relocate root_blkg setting and clearing
Hello, Jens. The original thread can be read from http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.cgroups/8937 While it leads to oops, given that it only triggers under specific configurations which aren't common. I don't think it's necessary to backport it through -stable and merging it during the coming merge window should be enough. Thanks! ----- 8< ----- Currently, q->root_blkg and q->root_rl.blkg are set from blkcg_activate_policy() and cleared from blkg_destroy_all(). This doesn't necessarily coincide with the lifetime of the root blkcg_gq leading to the following oops when blkcg is enabled but no policy is activated because __blk_queue_next_rl() malfunctions expecting the root_blkg pointers to be set.
