Yes, actually I'm using task_rq_lock() from the cgroup callback to
update each task already queued. And I do the same from the
sched_setattr syscall...

... thus, I'll look better into this.

Not sure now if there was some other corner-case.

In the past I remember some funny dance in cgroup callbacks when a
task was terminating (like being moved in the root-rq just before
exiting). But, as you say, if we always have the task_rq_lock we
should be safe.
