Right, the below should take care of it. Although I think it makes sense
to get this into at least 4.3 even if we won't use it until 4.4. Simply
because we already export sched_setscheduler(). If you agree I guess we
could route via -tip.


Subject: [PATCH -next] sched: Export sched_setscheduler_nocheck

... just like regular sched_setscheduler(). We need this, for locktorture
otherwise we can fail to build modules, ie:

ERROR: "sched_setscheduler_nocheck" [kernel/locking/locktorture.ko] undefined!
