Hi everyone,

This is version eleven of the patches previously posted here:

  v1: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20201027215118.27003-1-will@kernel.org
  v2: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20201109213023.15092-1-will@kernel.org
  v3: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20201113093720.21106-1-will@kernel.org
  v4: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20201124155039.13804-1-will@kernel.org
  v5: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20201208132835.6151-1-will@kernel.org
  v6: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210518094725.7701-1-will@kernel.org
  v7: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210525151432.16875-1-will@kernel.org
  v8: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210602164719.31777-1-will@kernel.org
  v9: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210608180313.11502-1-will@kernel.org
 v10: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20210623173848.318-1-will@kernel.org

The main changes since v10 are:

  * Now based on v5.14-rc1

  * Fixed a lockup found during testing where select_fallback_rq()
    could return an invalid CPU when trying to prioritise a destination
    on the same NUMA node

Greg kindly pointed out a potential issue with the new 'aarch32_el0'
file in sysfs, where the contents will be truncated if we need to
display more than a PAGE_SIZE of data. However, I have elected not to
address this for now as (a) I do not think we'll ever have hardware in
that configuration (yeah, I know...) and (b) It is useful for scripts
if the file behaves the same as the other files in the same directory
(e.g. 'online'). Should a solution to this problem emerge for the other
files, I will be happy to adopt it here as well.

This series is now mostly scheduler stuff, but the last few patches are
arm64 and so I would suggest a shared branch in -tip for merging.

Will Deacon (16):
  sched: Introduce task_cpu_possible_mask() to limit fallback rq
  cpuset: Don't use the cpu_possible_mask as a last resort for cgroup v1
  cpuset: Honour task_cpu_possible_mask() in guarantee_online_cpus()
  cpuset: Cleanup cpuset_cpus_allowed_fallback() use in
  sched: Reject CPU affinity changes based on task_cpu_possible_mask()
  sched: Introduce task_struct::user_cpus_ptr to track requested
  sched: Split the guts of sched_setaffinity() into a helper function
  sched: Allow task CPU affinity to be restricted on asymmetric systems
  sched: Introduce dl_task_check_affinity() to check proposed affinity
  arm64: Implement task_cpu_possible_mask()
  arm64: exec: Adjust affinity for compat tasks with mismatched 32-bit
  arm64: Prevent offlining first CPU with 32-bit EL0 on mismatched
  arm64: Advertise CPUs capable of running 32-bit applications in sysfs
  arm64: Hook up cmdline parameter to allow mismatched 32-bit EL0
  arm64: Remove logic to kill 32-bit tasks on 64-bit-only cores
