Subject: Re: [v2] workqueue: Fix double kfree for rescuer

I have got the impression that the implementation detail is important here
if non-null pointers (according to valid rescuer objects) are occasionally
passed by the corresponding data structure member for the callback
function “rcu_free_wq”.
Can another clarification attempt reduce unwanted confusion for this patch review?

Markus
