I dropped it on purpose as I was sure, that it's safe.

But after you poked me yesterday I spent quite some time staring at
that code and found that I missed the following:

worker A is about to go idle and the pool->idle_list is empty

calls worker_enter_idle()

list_add(&worker->entry, &pool->idle_list);

idle_list.prev = &worker->entry;

Preemption

Worker B runs and blocks.

wq_worker_sleeping() sees !list_empty(&pool->idle_list)

because idle_list.prev points already to worker A

Then first_worker returns idle_list.next which points to idle list
so we return some random crap to wakeup.

So yes, I've donned a brown paperbag and we need to bring back that
change and think about making it more palatable for mainline.

Find an untested patch against 3.6-rt below.

Thanks,

tglx
