Subject: [PATCH 3.2 152/200] cpuset: fix a race condition in
 __cpuset_node_allowed_softwall()

3.2.56-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Li Zefan <lizefan@...wei.com>

commit 99afb0fd5f05aac467ffa85c36778fec4396209b upstream.

It's not safe to access task's cpuset after releasing task_lock().
Holding callback_mutex won't help.
