Subject: [PATCH 2/2 V2] workqueue: remove the argument @wakeup from worker_set_flags()

worker_set_flags() doesn't necessarily wake next worker and the @wakeup
can be removed, the caller can use the following conbination instead
when needed:

	worker_set_flags();
	if (need_more_worker(pool))
 		wake_up_worker(pool);

It reduces the machine-code and footprint for the process_one_work()
if worker_set_flags() is really inlined.
