sched: Fix a race between __kthread_bind() and sched_setaffinity()
Because sched_setscheduler() checks p->flags & PF_NO_SETAFFINITY without locks, a caller might observe an old value and race with the set_cpus_allowed_ptr() call from __kthread_bind() and effectively undo it: __kthread_bind() do_set_cpus_allowed() <SYSCALL> sched_setaffinity() if (p->flags & PF_NO_SETAFFINITIY) set_cpus_allowed_ptr() p->flags |= PF_NO_SETAFFINITY Fix the bug by putting everything under the regular scheduler locks. This also closes a hole in the serialization of task_struct::{nr_,}cpus_allowed.
