3.13.11-ckt19 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jason Low <jason.low2@xxxxxx>

commit 283cb41f426b723a0255702b761b0fc5d1b53a81 upstream.

The cpuset.sched_relax_domain_level can control how far we do
immediate load balancing on a system. However, it was found on recent
kernels that echo'ing a value into cpuset.sched_relax_domain_level
did not reduce any immediate load balancing.

The reason this occurred was because the update_domain_attr_tree() traversal
did not update for the "top_cpuset". This resulted in nothing being changed
when modifying the sched_relax_domain_level parameter.

This patch is able to address that problem by having update_domain_attr_tree()
allow updates for the root in the cpuset traversal.

Fixes: fc560a26acce ("cpuset: replace cpuset->stack_list with cpuset_for_each_descendant_pre()")
