[GIT PULL] cgroup fixes for v4.3-rc2

From: Tejun Heo
Date: Fri Sep 25 2015 - 16:32:09 EST

Hello, Linus.

Another cgroup fix pull. The cgroup writeback support got
inadvertently enabled for traditional hierarchies revealing two
regressions which are currently being worked on. It shouldn't have
been enabled on traditional hierarchies, so disable it on them. This
is enough for making the regressions go away for people who aren't
experimenting with cgroup.


The following changes since commit 0c986253b939cc14c69d4adbe2b4121bdf4aa220:

Revert "sched, cgroup: replace signal_struct->group_rwsem with a global percpu_rwsem" (2015-09-16 11:51:12 -0400)
