Subject[patch 02/13] workqueue: Provide work_on_cpu_safe()
work_on_cpu() is not protected against CPU hotplug. For code which requires
to be either executed on an online CPU or to fail if the CPU is not
available the callsite would have to protect against CPU hotplug.

Provide a function which does get/put_online_cpus() around the call to
work_on_cpu() and fails the call with -ENODEV if the target CPU is not
online.

Preparatory patch to convert several racy task affinity manipulations.
