workqueues: do CPU_UP_CANCELED if CPU_UP_PREPARE fails
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:47:54 +0000 (01:47 -0700)]
The bug was pointed out by Akinobu Mita <akinobu.mita@gmail.com>, and this
patch is based on his original patch.

workqueue_cpu_callback(CPU_UP_PREPARE) expects that if it returns
NOTIFY_BAD, _cpu_up() will send CPU_UP_CANCELED then.

However, this is not true since

"cpu hotplug: cpu: deliver CPU_UP_CANCELED only to NOTIFY_OKed callbacks with CPU_UP_PREPARE"
commit: a0d8cdb652d35af9319a9e0fb7134de2a276c636

The callback which has returned NOTIFY_BAD will not receive
CPU_UP_CANCELED.  Change the code to fulfil the CPU_UP_CANCELED logic if
CPU_UP_PREPARE fails.
