4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Zefan Li <lize...@huawei.com>

commit 06f4e94898918bcad00cdd4d349313a439d6911e upstream.

A new task inherits cpus_allowed and mems_allowed masks from its parent,
but if someone changes cpuset's config by writing to cpuset.cpus/cpuset.mems
before this new task is inserted into the cgroup's task list, the new task
won't be updated accordingly.
