[PATCH 3.4 058/125] sched/core: Clear the root_domain cpumasks in init_rootdomain()

From: lizf

3.4.113-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 8295c69925ad53ec32ca54ac9fc194ff21bc40e2 upstream.

root_domain::rto_mask allocated through alloc_cpumask_var()
contains garbage data, this may cause problems. For instance,
When doing pull_rt_task(), it may do useless iterations if
rto_mask retains some extra garbage bits. Worse still, this
violates the isolated domain rule for clustered scheduling
using cpuset, because the tasks(with all the cpus allowed)
belongs to one root domain can be pulled away into another
root domain.

The patch cleans the garbage by using zalloc_cpumask_var()
instead of alloc_cpumask_var() for root_domain::rto_mask
allocation, thereby addressing the issues.

Do the same thing for root_domain's other cpumask memembers:
dlo_mask, span, and online.
