CVE-2018-20784

Sargun reported a crash:

  "I picked up c40f7d74c741a907cfaeb73a7697081881c497d0 sched/fair: Fix
   infinite loop in update_blocked_averages() by reverting a9e7f6544b9c
   and put it on top of 4.19.13. In addition to this, I uninlined
   list_add_leaf_cfs_rq for debugging.

   This revealed a new bug that we didn't get to because we kept getting
   crashes from the previous issue. When we are running with cgroups that
   are rapidly changing, with CFS bandwidth control, and in addition
   using the cpusets cgroup, we see this crash. Specifically, it seems to
   occur with cgroups that are throttled and we change the allowed
   cpuset."

The algorithm used to order cfs_rq in rq->leaf_cfs_rq_list assumes that
it will walk down to root the 1st time a cfs_rq is used and we will finish
to add either a cfs_rq without parent or a cfs_rq with a parent that is
already on the list. But this is not always true in presence of throttling.
Because a cfs_rq can be throttled even if it has never been used but other CPUs
of the cgroup have already used all the bandwdith, we are not sure to go down to
the root and add all cfs_rq in the list.

Ensure that all cfs_rq will be added in the list even if they are throttled.
