sched: adjust when cpu_active and cpuset configurations are updated during cpu on/offlining
Currently, when a cpu goes down, cpu_active is cleared before
CPU_DOWN_PREPARE starts and cpuset configuration is updated from a
default priority cpu notifier. When a cpu is coming up, it's set
before CPU_ONLINE but cpuset configuration again is updated from the
same cpu notifier.
For cpu notifiers, this presents an inconsistent state. Threads which
a CPU_DOWN_PREPARE notifier expects to be bound to the CPU can be
migrated to other cpus because the cpu is no more inactive.
Fix it by updating cpu_active in the highest priority cpu notifier and
cpuset configuration in the second highest when a cpu is coming up.
Down path is updated similarly. This guarantees that all other cpu
notifiers see consistent cpu_active and cpuset configuration.
cpuset_track_online_cpus() notifier is converted to
cpuset_update_active_cpus() which just updates the configuration and
now called from cpuset_cpu_[in]active() notifiers registered from
sched_init_smp(). If cpuset is disabled, cpuset_update_active_cpus()
degenerates into partition_sched_domains() making separate notifier
for !CONFIG_CPUSETS unnecessary.
This problem is triggered by cmwq. During CPU_DOWN_PREPARE, hotplug
callback creates a kthread and kthread_bind()s it to the target cpu,
and the thread is expected to run on that cpu.
* Ingo's test discovered __cpuinit/exit markups were incorrect.
