cpuset,mempolicy: fix sleeping function called from invalid context
commit 391acf970d21219a2a5446282d3b20eace0c0d7a upstream. When runing with the kernel(3.15-rc7+), the follow bug occurs: [ 9969.258987] BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/locking/mutex.c:586 [ 9969.359906] in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 0, pid: 160655, name: python [ 9969.441175] INFO: lockdep is turned off.

And in cpuset_mems_allowed(), the access to cpuset is under rcu_read_lock, so in __mpol_dup, we can reduce the rcu_read_lock protection region to protect the access to cpuset only in current_cpuset_is_being_rebound(). So that we can avoid this bug. This patch is a temporary solution that just addresses the bug mentioned above, can not fix the long-standing issue about cpuset.mems rebinding on fork(): "When the forker's task_struct is duplicated (which includes ->mems_allowed) and it races with an update to cpuset_being_rebound in update_tasks_nodemask() then the task's mems_allowed doesn't get updated. And the child task's mems_allowed can be wrong if the cpuset's nodemask changes before the child has been added to the cgroup's tasklist."
