SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 7/8] workqueue: Remove the outer loop in maybe_create_worker()

So, before if multiple workers need to be created, a single manager would
create them all. After, we'd end up daisy chaining, right? One manager
creates one worker and goes to process one work item. The new worker wakes
up and becomes the manager and creates another worker and so on. That
doesn't seem like a desirable behavior.

Thanks.
