sched/cgroup: Move sched_online_group() back into css_online() to fix crash
Commit: 2f5177f0fd7e ("sched/cgroup: Fix/cleanup cgroup teardown/init") .. moved sched_online_group() from css_online() to css_alloc(). It exposes half-baked task group into global lists before initializing generic cgroup stuff. LTP testcase (third in cgroup_regression_test) written for testing similar race in kernels 2.6.26-2.6.28 easily triggers this oops: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000008 IP: kernfs_path_from_node_locked+0x260/0x320 CPU: 1 PID: 30346 Comm: cat Not tainted 4.10.0-rc5-test #4 Call Trace: ? kernfs_path_from_node+0x4f/0x60 kernfs_path_from_node+0x3e/0x60 print_rt_rq+0x44/0x2b0 print_rt_stats+0x7a/0xd0 print_cpu+0x2fc/0xe80 ? __might_sleep+0x4a/0x80 sched_debug_show+0x17/0x30 seq_read+0xf2/0x3b0 proc_reg_read+0x42/0x70 __vfs_read+0x28/0x130 ? security_file_permission+0x9b/0xc0 ? rw_verify_area+0x4e/0xb0 vfs_read+0xa5/0x170 SyS_read+0x46/0xa0 entry_SYSCALL_64_fastpath+0x1e/0xad Here the task group is already linked into the global RCU-protected 'task_groups' list, but the css->cgroup pointer is still NULL. This patch reverts this chunk and moves online back to css_online().
