Subject: [PATCH 4.19 093/280] mm: handle lru_add_drain_all for UP properly

4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 6ea183d60c469560e7b08a83c9804299e84ec9eb ]

Since for_each_cpu(cpu, mask) added by commit 2d3854a37e8b767a
("cpumask: introduce new API, without changing anything") did not
evaluate the mask argument if NR_CPUS == 1 due to CONFIG_SMP=n,
lru_add_drain_all() is hitting WARN_ON() at __flush_work() added by
commit 4d43d395fed12463 ("workqueue: Try to catch flush_work() without
INIT_WORK().") by unconditionally calling flush_work() [1].

Workaround this issue by using CONFIG_SMP=n specific lru_add_drain_all
implementation.  There is no real need to defer the implementation to
the workqueue as the draining is going to happen on the local cpu.  So
alias lru_add_drain_all to lru_add_drain which does all the necessary
work.
