[PATCH v2] sched/deadline: fix rt runtime corrupt when dl refuse a smaller bandwidth

From: Wanpeng Li
Date: Tue Nov 18 2014 - 18:02:26 EST

Dl class will refuse the bandwidth being set to some value smaller
than the currently allocated bandwidth in any of the root_domains
through sched_rt_runtime_us and sched_rt_period_us. RT runtime will
be set according to sched_rt_runtime_us before dl class verify if
the new bandwidth is suitable in the case of !CONFIG_RT_GROUP_SCHED.

However, rt runtime will be corrupt if dl refuse the new bandwidth
since there is no undo to reset the rt runtime to the old value.

This patch fix it by verifying new bandwidth for deadline in advance.

v1 -> v2:
* move sched_dl_global_constraints before sched_rt_global_constraints,
and change the name of the former to sched_dl_global_validate().
