Shouldn't that be done before any of the bailouts above, so we can
potentially restore the mask even if we end up forcefully expanding the
affinity?

I'm thinking this might not be required with:

http://lore.kernel.org/r/20210526205751.842360-3-valentin.schneider@arm.com

but then again this isn't merged yet :-)

AFAICT an affinity change can happen between __sched_setaffinity() and
reacquiring the ->pi_lock. Right now this can't be another
force_compatible_cpus_allowed_ptr() because this is only driven by
arch_setup_new_exec() against current, so we should be fine, but here be
dragons.
