So, the rescuer handling seems fine and nothing really changed from
workqueue side.  Any chance cpuset is involved?  If so, there was a
recent race condition fix 77f88796cee8 ("cgroup, kthread: close race
window where new kthreads can be migrated to non-root cgroups").  If
that's not it, it'd be great if you can explain the test case so that
I can repro the problem.
