Subject[GIT PULL] workqueue fixes for 3.11-rc4
Hello, Linus.

A lockdep notation update so that nested work_on_cpu() invocations
don't lead to spurious lockdep warnings and fix for an unbound attr
bug which made what's shown in sysfs deviate from the actual ones.
Both patches have pretty limited scope.

The two patches are available in the following branch

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq.git for-3.11-fixes

for you to fetch changes up to 2865a8fb44cc32420407362cbda80c10fa09c6b2:

workqueue: copy workqueue_attrs with all fields (2013-08-01 08:36:40 -0400)

Thanks.
