This is an awfully inadequate patch description. Can you change it to
something like the following?

workqueue: fix bugs in wq_update_unbound_numa() failure path

wq_update_unbound_numa() failure path has the following two bugs.

* alloc_unbound_pwq() is called without holding wq->mutex; however, if
the allocation fails, it jumps to out_unlock which tries to unlock

* The function should switch to dfl_pwq on failure but didn't do so
after alloc_unbound_pwq() failure.

Fix it by regrabbing wq->mutex and jumping to use_dfl_pwq on
alloc_unbound_pwq() failure.

And please put this in a separate patch. Patches which are to be
backported through -stable should be minimal. Also, please update the
comment above to reflect the change.
