sched: Don't use possibly stale sched_class
setscheduler() saves task->sched_class outside of the rq->lock held region for a check after the setscheduler changes have become effective. That might result in checking a stale value. rtmutex_setprio() has the same problem, though it is protected by p->pi_lock against setscheduler(), but for correctness sake (and to avoid bad examples) it needs to be fixed as well. Retrieve task->sched_class inside of the rq->lock held region. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: stable@kernel.org
