Merge branch 'for-3.17-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup
Pull cgroup fixes from Tejun Heo: "This is quite late but these need to be backported anyway. This is the fix for a long-standing cpuset bug which existed from 2009. cpuset makes use of PF_SPREAD_{PAGE|SLAB} flags to modify the task's memory allocation behavior according to the settings of the cpuset it belongs to; unfortunately, when those flags have to be changed, cpuset did so directly even whlie the target task is running, which is obviously racy as task->flags may be modified by the task itself at any time. This obscure bug manifested as corrupt PF_USED_MATH flag leading to a weird crash. The bug is fixed by moving the flag to task->atomic_flags. The first two are prepatory ones to help defining atomic_flags accessors and the third one is the actual fix" * 'for-3.17-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup: cpuset: PF_SPREAD_PAGE and PF_SPREAD_SLAB should be atomic flags sched: add macros to define bitops for task atomic flags sched: fix confusing PFA_NO_NEW_PRIVS constant
