Sorry I goofed up here. Thank you Sudip for catching this.

I forgot to look up for the upstream followup fixes for the patches
which I submitted lately and missed out on this Revert.

msm-4.9 tree, which I'm currently looking at, didn't revert this
particular patch either. It did cherry-pick e8b3f8db7aad
("workqueue/hotplug: simplify workqueue_offline_cpu()") as well
though.

About e8b3f8db7aad ("workqueue/hotplug: simplify workqueue_offline_cpu()"):

workqueue/hotplug: simplify workqueue_offline_cpu()

Since the recent cpu/hotplug refactoring, workqueue_offline_cpu() is
guaranteed to run on the local cpu which is going offline.

This also fixes the following deadlock by removing work item
scheduling and flushing from CPU hotplug path.

http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1504764252-29091-1-git-send-email-prsood@codeaurora.org
--------------------------------------------
This patch applies cleanly to 4.14.y and 4.9.y. But I'm confused if
this particular patch alone is good enough for these stable kernels,
since the commit message talks about some "recent cpu/hotplug
refactoring" dependency(?).

Regards,
Amit Pundir
