Subject: [PATCH] workqueue: remove meaningless BUILD_BUG_ON() in init_workqueues()

From: Li Bin <>

In the current implementation, this BUILD_BUG_ON makes no sense.
First of all, the number of worker pools needed cannot be determined
at compile time, because the number of backing pools for UNBOUND
workqueues is dynamic based on the assigned custom attributes.
Secondly, it should use WORK_OFFQ_POOL_BITS instead of
