Subject: [PATCH v6 05/18] workqueue: use WARN_ON_FUNCTION_MISMATCH

With CONFIG_CFI_CLANG, a callback function passed to
__queue_delayed_work from a module points to a jump table entry
defined in the module instead of the one used in the core kernel,
which breaks function address equality in this check:

  WARN_ON_ONCE(timer->function != delayed_work_timer_fn);

Use WARN_ON_FUNCTION_MISMATCH() instead to disable the warning
when CFI and modules are both enabled.
