Subject: [PATCH] sched: reset task's lockless wake-queues on fork()
Date: Mon, 21 Dec 2015 18:17:10 +0100
Message-ID: <20151221171710.GA5499@linutronix.de> (raw)

In 7675104990ed ("sched: Implement lockless wake-queues") we gained
lockless wake-queues. -RT managed to lockup itself with those. There
could be multiple attempts for task X to enqueue it for a wakeup
_even_ if task X is already running.
The reason is that task X could be runnable but not yet on CPU. The the
task performing the wakeup did not leave the CPU it could performe
multiple wakeups.
With the proper timming task X could be running and enqueued for a
wakeup. If this happens while X is performing a fork() then its its
child will have a !NULL `wake_q` member copied.
This is not a problem as long as the child task does not participate in
lockless wakeups :)
