Subject[PATCH 2/2] tracing/workqueue: separate singlethreaded workqueues
When a singlethread thread is added on the list, it is
appended to the first cpu workqueues. This is a mistake because
singlethreaded workqueues are not bounded to specific cpu but
on all online cpus.

On their cpu column, we will now find a * character.

# CPU INSERTED EXECUTED NAME
# | | | |

* 0 0 kpsmoused
* 0 0 ata_aux
* 0 0 cqueue
* 0 0 kacpi_notify
* 0 0 kacpid
* 998 998 khelper
* 0 0 cpuset

1 193 193 kblockd/1
1 0 0 kintegrityd/1

0 0 0 hda0/0
0 63 63 reiserfs/0

0 0 0 aio/0
0 0 0 ata/0
0 188 188 kblockd/0
0 0 0 kintegrityd/0
0 16 16 work_on_cpu/0
0 1360 1360 events/0

Hmm, it looks like most of these workqueues are pointless :-)
