Subject[PATCH 00/13] workqueue: enhance locking and record global worker id for work data
Better Locking:

We have a much complex way to find out on which pool a given work is queued on,
mainly based on *mb() which is the most dangerous code and bad for readability.
This series change the usage of CWQ bit and makes these code simpler.
--PATCH 3,4,5

We have get_work_pool(), but it requires the caller do the later check and locking,
we replace it which 3 better internal locking API. 1) More proper API and
2) merge the duplicated code and 3) simplify the caller.
--PATCH 8,9,10

get_work_pool()/get_work_pool_id() are called everywhere, something they are
overkill(called idr_find() unneeded) and indirectly(caller knows it is onq or not),
we replace them with get_work_cwq()/offq_work_pool_id()/locking APIs.
--PATCH 3,4,5,6,8,9,10

Safely/one-step searching and worker id:

We are planing to add non-std worker_pool, but old get_work_pool() or new
lock_pool_executing_work() was not prepared for this plan, idr_find(pool_id)
is unsafe when we introduce free-able non-std worker_pool. Although we can
fix it by adding rcu to worker_pool. but "recording global worker id for
work data and adding rcu to worker" is another way and more straight forward.
We implement the later one, Now, lock_pool_executing_work() is ready for this plan.
--PATCH 12,13

When every time we need to find out the running worker from a work,
we need two searches: search work_pool from work's data, and search worker
from hash. We record global worker id for work data and we only need one search.
--PATCH 13

--PATCH 1,2,7,11

On top of tj/for-3.9 706026c2141113886f61e1ad2738c9a7723ec69c

Lai Jiangshan (13):
workqueue: remove WORK_CPU_NONE
workqueue: fix work_busy()
workqueue: don't set work cwq until we queued it on pool
workqueue: clear cwq when cancel the work
workqueue: change queued detection and remove *mb()s
workqueue: get pool id from work->data directly if it is offq
workqueue: get pool from wq/cwq
workqueue: add lock_pool_executing_work()
workqueue: add lock_pool_queued_work()
workqueue: add lock_pool_own_work() and remove get_work_pool()
workqueue: allow more work_pool id space
workqueue: add worker's global worker ID
workqueue: record global worker ID instead of pool ID in work->data
when off-queue
