[PATCH] sched_setscheduler: fix? policy checks



I am not sure this patch is correct: I can't understand what the current
code does, and I don't know what it was supposed to do.

The comment says:

		 * can't change policy, except between SCHED_NORMAL
		 * and SCHED_BATCH:

The code:

		if (((policy != SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy != SCHED_BATCH) &&
			(policy != SCHED_BATCH && p->policy != SCHED_NORMAL)) &&

But this is equivalent to:

		if ( (is_rt_policy(policy) && has_rt_policy(p)) &&

which means something different.  We can't _decrease_ the current
->rt_priority with such a check (if rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0).

Probably, it was supposed to be:

		if (	!(policy == SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy == SCHED_BATCH)  &&
			!(policy == SCHED_BATCH  && p->policy == SCHED_NORMAL)

this matches the comment, but strange: it doesn't allow to _drop_ the
realtime priority when rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0.

I think the right check would be:

		/* can't set/change rt policy */
		if (is_rt_policy(policy) &&
				policy != p->policy &&
				!rlim_rtprio)
			return -EPERM;
