      Pull workqueue fix from Tejun Heo:
       "So, it turns out we had a silly bug in the most fundamental part of
        workqueue for a very long time.  AFAICS, this dates back to pre-git
        era and has quite likely been there from the time workqueue was first
        introduced.
      
        A work item uses its PENDING bit to synchronize multiple queuers.
        Anyone who wins the PENDING bit owns the pending state of the work
        item.  Whether a queuer wins or loses the race, one thing should be
        guaranteed - there will soon be at least one execution of the work
        item - where "after" means that the execution instance would be able
        to see all the changes that the queuer has made prior to the queueing
        attempt.
      
        Unfortunately, we were missing a smp_mb() after clearing PENDING for
        execution, so nothing guaranteed visibility of the changes that a
        queueing loser has made, which manifested as a reproducible blk-mq
        stall.
      
        Lots of kudos to Roman for debugging the problem.  The patch for
        -stable is the minimal one.  For v3.7, Peter is working on a patch to
        make the code path slightly more efficient and less fragile"

      Pull cgroup fixes from Tejun Heo:
       "Two patches to fix a deadlock which can be easily triggered if memcg
        charge moving is used.
      
        This bug was introduced while converting threadgroup locking to a
        global percpu_rwsem and is caused by cgroup controller task migration
        path depending on the ability to create new kthreads.  cpuset had a
        similar issue which was fixed by performing heavy-lifting operations
        asynchronous to task migration.  The two patches fix the same issue in
        memcg in a similar way.  The first patch makes the mechanism generic
        and the second relocates memcg charge moving outside the migration
        path.
      
        Given that we don't want to perform heavy operations while
        writelocking threadgroup lock anyway, moving them out of the way is a
        desirable solution.  One thing to note is that the problem was
        difficult to debug because lockdep couldn't figure out the deadlock
        condition.  Looking into how to improve that"
