Hi, I think we should stay with v3 after all. What I missed when
reviewing it, is that the EPERM check is for cpuset_mems_allowed(task)
and in v3 you add EINVAL check for cpuset_mems_allowed(current), which
may not be the same, and the intention of CAP_SYS_NICE is not whether we
can bypass our own cpuset, but whether we can bypass the target task's
cpuset. Sorry for the confusion.
