[PATCH] psi: get poll_work to run when calling poll syscall next time

From: Jason Xing
Date: Tue Jul 23 2019 - 02:46:00 EST

Only when calling the poll syscall the first time can user
receive POLLPRI correctly. After that, user always fails to
acquire the event signal.

Reproduce case:
1. Get the monitor code in Documentation/accounting/psi.txt
2. Run it, and wait for the event triggered.
3. Kill and restart the process.

If the user doesn't kill the monitor process, it seems the
poll_work works fine. After killing and restarting the monitor,
the poll_work in kernel will never run again due to the wrong
value of poll_scheduled. Therefore, we should reset the value
as group_init() does after the last trigger is destroyed.
