[PATCH] cpuset: skip rcu check if task is in root cpuset



For systems that aren't using cpusets, but have them CONFIG_CPUSET enabled in
their kernel (eventually this may be most distribution kernels), this patch
removes even the minimal rcu_read_lock() from the memory page allocation path.

Actually, it removes that rcu call for any task that is in the root cpuset
(top_cpuset), which on systems not actively using cpusets, is all tasks.

We don't need the rcu check for tasks in the top_cpuset, because the
top_cpuset is statically allocated, so at no risk of being freed out from
underneath us.
