[RFC PATCH for 4.21 03/16] sched: Implement push_task_to_cpu (v2)




Implement push_task_to_cpu(), which moves the task received as argument
to the destination cpu's runqueue. It only does so if the CPU is within
the CPU allowed mask of the task and if the CPU is active. If the CPU is
not part of the allowed mask, -EINVAL is returned. If the CPU is not
active, -EBUSY is returned.

It does not change the CPU allowed mask, and can therefore be used
within applications which rely on owning the sched_setaffinity() state.

It does not pin the task to the destination CPU, which means that the
scheduler may choose to move the task away from that CPU before the
task executes. Code invoking push_task_to_cpu() must be prepared to
retry in that case.
