sched: Fix KVM and ia64 boot crash due to sched_groups circular linked list assumption
If we have one cpu that failed to boot and boot cpu gave up on waiting for it and then another cpu is being booted, kernel might crash with following OOPS: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000018 IP: [<ffffffff812c3630>] __bitmap_weight+0x30/0x80 Call Trace: [<ffffffff8108b9b6>] build_sched_domains+0x7b6/0xa50 The crash happens in init_sched_groups_power() that expects sched_groups to be circular linked list. However it is not always true, since sched_groups preallocated in __sdt_alloc are initialized in build_sched_groups and it may exit early if (cpu != cpumask_first(sched_domain_span(sd))) return 0; without initializing sd->groups->next field. Fix bug by initializing next field right after sched_group was allocated.
