notify_down_prepare: attempt to take down CPU 0 failed

This bug can be reproduced by below config w/ nohz_full= all cpus:

CONFIG_BOOTPARAM_HOTPLUG_CPU0=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_HOTPLUG_CPU0=y
CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y

The boot CPU handles housekeeping duty(unbound timers, workqueues,
timekeeping, ...) on behalf of full dynticks CPUs. It must remain
online when nohz full is enabled. There is a priority set to every
notifier_blocks:

workqueue_cpu_up > tick_nohz_cpu_down > workqueue_cpu_down

So tick_nohz_cpu_down callback failed when down prepare cpu 0, and
notifier_blocks behind tick_nohz_cpu_down will not be called any
more, which leads to workers are actually not unbound. Then hotplug
state machine will fallback to undo and online cpu 0 again. Workers
will be rebound unconditionally even if they are not unbound and
trigger the warning in this progress.

This patch fix it by catching !DISASSOCIATED to avoid rebind bound
workers.
