I don't think we can call update_tasks_cpumask() under
rcu_read_lock().  It calls into set_cpus_allowed_ptr() which may
block, so you'll probably have to punt it to a work item like how
migration is being done.  Another approach would be converting cgroup
to use SRCU instead, which would lessen pain on other places too.  The
only problem there would be that srcu_read_lock() is a bit more
expensive than rcu_read_lock().  I'm not sure whether that'd show up
in some hot path or not.  Ideas?

Thanks.
