Thanks for the comments (I did not notice that hrtimer_init() was called twice)
and for the patch. I'll test it in the next days.

For reference, I attach the patch I am using locally (based on what I suggested
in my previous mail) and seems to work fine here.

Based on your comments, I suspect my patch can be further simplified by moving
the call to init_dl_task_timer() in __sched_fork().

Just for the sake of curiosity, why trying to cancel the timer
("|| hrtimer_try_to_cancel(timer)") here? If it is active, cannot we leave it
active (without touching dl_throttled, dl_new and dl_yielded)?

I mean: if I try to change the parameters of a task when it is throttled, I'd like
it to stay throttled until the end of the reservation period... Or am I missing
something?


				Thanks,
