but the problem has nothing to do with self-recursion. Take a look at the
lockdep warning i posted (also below) - the locks are simply taken in the
wrong order.

your change adds this cpu_hotplug.lock usage:

[ 43.652000] -> #1 (&cpu_hotplug.lock){--..}:
[ 43.652000] [<ffffffff8027a7c0>] __lock_acquire+0xf10/0x1360
[ 43.652000] [<ffffffff8027aca9>] lock_acquire+0x99/0xd0

which nests the inside sysdev_drivers_lock - which is wrong
[sysdev_drivers_lock is a pretty lowlevel lock that generally nests inside
the CPU hotplug lock].

If you want to use work_on_cpu() it should be done on a higher level, so
that sysdev_drivers_lock is taken after the hotplug lock.
