Subject: [PATCH -tip V3 2/8] workqueue: Manually break affinity on pool detachment

From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@...ux.alibaba.com>

The pool->attrs->cpumask might be a single CPU and it may go
down after detachment, and the scheduler won't force to break
affinity for us since it is a per-cpu-ktrhead.  So we have to
do it on our own and unbind this worker which can't be unbound
by workqueue_offline_cpu() since it doesn't belong to any pool
after detachment.  Do it unconditionally for there is no harm
to break affinity for non-per-cpu-ktrhead and we don't need to
rely on the scheduler's policy on when to break affinity.

Fixes: 06249738a41a ("workqueue: Manually break affinity on hotplug")
