workqueue: fix rebind bound workers warning

One which handles | UP/DOWN_FAILED/ONLINE and one which handles DOWN_PREPARE. | | Now look at the priorities of those callbacks: | | CPU_PRI_WORKQUEUE_UP = 5 | CPU_PRI_WORKQUEUE_DOWN = -5 | | So the call order on DOWN_PREPARE is: | | CB 1 | CB ... | CB workqueue_up() -> Ignores DOWN_PREPARE | CB ... | CB X ---> Fails | | So we call up to CB X with DOWN_FAILED | | CB 1 | CB ... | CB workqueue_up() -> Handles DOWN_FAILED | CB ... | CB X-1 | | So the problem is that the workqueue stuff handles DOWN_FAILED in the up | callback, while it should do it in the down callback. Which is not a good idea | either because it wants to be called early on rollback... | | Brilliant stuff, isn't it? The hotplug rework will solve this problem because | the callbacks become symetric, but for the existing mess, we need some | workaround in the workqueue code. The boot CPU handles housekeeping duty(unbound timers, workqueues, timekeeping, ...) on behalf of full dynticks CPUs. It must remain online when nohz full is enabled. There is a priority set to every notifier_blocks: workqueue_cpu_up > tick_nohz_cpu_down > workqueue_cpu_down So tick_nohz_cpu_down callback failed when down prepare cpu 0, and notifier_blocks behind tick_nohz_cpu_down will not be called any more, which leads to workers are actually not unbound. Then hotplug state machine will fallback to undo and online cpu 0 again. Workers will be rebound unconditionally even if they are not unbound and trigger the warning in this progress. This patch fix it by catching !DISASSOCIATED to avoid rebind bound workers.
