Subject: [PATCH 3/3] workqueue: unfold start_worker() into create_worker()

Simply unfold the code of start_worker() into create_worker() and
remove the original start_worker() and create_and_start_worker().

maybe_create_worker() also becomes decently shorter.

The only trade-off is the introduced overhead that the pool->lock
is released and regrabbed after the newly worker is started.
The overhead is acceptible since the manager is slow path.
