[PATCH] cgroup/cpu: Fix tg_has_rt_task() malfunction

I am a graduate student of System Software Lab. at Konkuk University

This patch is to fix the malfunction of tg_has_rt_tasks(). The
tg_has_rt_tasks() function is supposed to determine whether a task
group includes an "rt task" or not. However, it returns true for
"dl task" too. The origin of this problem is that rt_task() called
by tg_has_rt_tasks() returns true for dl tasks. Because of this
problem, tg_rt_schedulable() that calls tg_has_rt_tasks() returns
âEBUSY if we try to initialize an rt task group, while a dl task
is running. That is, you cannot run an rt task group when there
exists a dl task in the system. Our patch provided in this post
simply makes the tg_has_rt_tasks() function return false for dl
tasks by calling dl_task() in the conditional statement.

Previously we have provided another patch for rt_task() (more
precisely rt_prio()) to resolve this problem as follows:
However, a dependency issue were raised. So, we think that it is
better to modify tg_has_rt_tasks() instead of rt_task() itself.
