Subject: [PATCH 1/2] kthread: Move prio/affinite change into the newly created thread
Date: Tue, 10 Nov 2020 12:38:47 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201110113848.801379-2-bigeasy@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20201110113848.801379-1-bigeasy@linutronix.de>

With enabled threaded interrupts the nouveau driver reported the
following:
| Chain exists of:
|   &mm->mmap_lock#2 --> &device->mutex --> &cpuset_rwsem
|
|  Possible unsafe locking scenario:
|
|        CPU0                    CPU1
|        ----                    ----
|   lock(&cpuset_rwsem);
|                                lock(&device->mutex);
|                                lock(&cpuset_rwsem);
|   lock(&mm->mmap_lock#2);

The device->mutex is nvkm_device::mutex.

Unblocking the lockchain at `cpuset_rwsem' is probably the easiest thing
to do.
Move the priority reset to the start of the newly created thread.

Fixes: 710da3c8ea7df ("sched/core: Prevent race condition between cpuset and __sched_setscheduler()")
