[PATCH V3 00/10] sched/deadline: fix cpusets bandwidth accounting

This is the third installment of a patchset that attempt to fix a problem
reported by Steve Rostedt [1] where DL bandwidth accounting is not
recomputed after CPUset and CPU hotplug operations took place.  When CPU
hotplug and some CUPset manipulation take place root domains are destroyed
and new ones created, loosing at the same time DL accounting information
pertaining to utilisation.  Please see [2] for a full description of the

The most notable change in this revision is the resolution of
synchronisation issues between function __sched_setscheduler() and the
the CPUset subsystem as pointed out by Juri Lelli.

As with the second revision this set is available here [3] with the 
instrumentattion for patch 10/10 in this commit [4].  

This set applies cleanly on top of v4.16-rc1.

Best regards,

Changes for V3:
. Addressed potential race conditions between the CPUset subsystem and
  function __sched_setscheduler().
. Added a lockdep asset to function partition_sched_domains(). 

Change for V2:
. Addressing a problem found by Luca Abeni where the mask of a DL task
  isn't modified when cpuset are collapsed.
