    This is due to _cpu_down() calling kthread_bind() in state TASK_RUNNING.

    So I was sent the below, including worrisome changelog.

    From: Gautham R Shenoy <>

    We are anyway kthread_stop()ping other per-cpu kernel threads after
    move_task_off_dead_cpu(), so we can do it with the stop_machine_run thread
    as well.

    I just checked with Vatsa if there was any subtle reason why they
    had put in the kthread_bind() in cpu.c. Vatsa cannot seem to recollect
    any and I can't see any. So let us just remove the kthread_bind.
