blk-cgroup: Fix RCU correctness warning in cfq_init_queue()
Vivek Goyal [Thu, 22 Apr 2010 15:54:52 +0000 (11:54 -0400)]
It is necessary to be in an RCU read-side critical section when invoking
css_id(), so this patch adds one to blkiocg_add_blkio_group().  This is
actually a false positive, because this is called at initialization time
and hence always refers to the root cgroup, which cannot go away.
