[PATCH] sched_setscheduler: fix? policy checks
I am not sure this patch is correct: I can't understand what the current code does, and I don't know what it was supposed to do. The comment says: * can't change policy, except between SCHED_NORMAL * and SCHED_BATCH: The code: if (((policy != SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy != SCHED_BATCH) && (policy != SCHED_BATCH && p->policy != SCHED_NORMAL)) && But this is equivalent to: if ( (is_rt_policy(policy) && has_rt_policy(p)) && which means something different. We can't _decrease_ the current ->rt_priority with such a check (if rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0). Probably, it was supposed to be: if ( !(policy == SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy == SCHED_BATCH) && !(policy == SCHED_BATCH && p->policy == SCHED_NORMAL) this matches the comment, but strange: it doesn't allow to _drop_ the realtime priority when rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0. I think the right check would be: /* can't set/change rt policy */ if (is_rt_policy(policy) && policy != p->policy && !rlim_rtprio) return -EPERM; Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Nick Piggin <nickpiggin@yahoo.com.au> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
