Merge branch 'for-4.11-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup
Pull cgroup fixes from Tejun Heo:
"This contains fixes for two long standing subtle bugs:
- kthread_bind() on a new kthread binds it to specific CPUs and
prevents userland from messing with the affinity or cgroup
membership. Unfortunately, for cgroup membership, there's a window
between kthread creation and kthread_bind*() invocation where the
kthread can be moved into a non-root cgroup by userland.
Depending on what controllers are in effect, this can assign the
kthread unexpected attributes. For example, in the reported case,
workqueue workers ended up in a non-root cpuset cgroups and had
their CPU affinities overridden. This broke workqueue invariants
and led to workqueue stalls.
Fixed by closing the window between kthread creation and
kthread_bind() as suggested by Oleg.
- There was a bug in cgroup mount path which could allow two
competing mount attempts to attach the same cgroup_root to two
This was caused by mishandling return value from kernfs_pin_sb().
