Subject: [186/272] sched, cgroup: Use exit hook to avoid use-after-free crash

2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@...radead.org>

commit 068c5cc5ac7414a8e9eb7856b4bf3cc4d4744267 upstream.

By not notifying the controller of the on-exit move back to
init_css_set, we fail to move the task out of the previous
cgroup's cfs_rq. This leads to an opportunity for a
cgroup-destroy to come in and free the cgroup (there are no
active tasks left in it after all) to which the not-quite dead
task is still enqueued.
