[PATCH 5.3 029/105] sched/core: Avoid spurious lock dependencies

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Dec 11 2019 - 11:08:38 EST

[ Upstream commit ff51ff84d82aea5a889b85f2b9fb3aa2b8691668 ]

While seemingly harmless, __sched_fork() does hrtimer_init(), which,
when DEBUG_OBJETS, can end up doing allocations.

This then results in the following lock order:


Which in turn causes deadlocks when we do wakeups while holding that
batched_entropy lock -- as the random code does.

Solve this by moving __sched_fork() out from under rq->lock. This is
safe because nothing there relies on rq->lock, as also evident from the
other __sched_fork() callsite.
