Subject: [PATCH] sched: Handle priority boosted tasks proper in setscheduler()
Date: Tue, 5 May 2015 18:08:01 +0200 (CEST)
Message-ID: <alpine.DEB.2.11.1505051806060.4225@nanos> (raw)

Ronny reported that the following scenario is not handled correctly:

T1 (prio = 10)
   lock(rtmutex);

T2 (prio = 20)
   lock(rtmutex)
      boost T1

T1 (prio = 20)
   sys_set_scheduler(prio = 30)
   T1 prio = 30
   ....
   sys_set_scheduler(prio = 10)
   T1 prio = 30

The last step is wrong as T1 should now be back at prio 20.

commit c365c292d0590 "sched: Consider pi boosting in setscheduler()"
only handles the case where a boosted tasks tries to lower its
priority.

Fix it by taking the new effective priority into account for the
decision whether a change of the priority is required.
