Subject[PATCH 5.4 085/177] workqueue: Fix spurious sanity check failures in destroy_workqueue()
Date
From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

commit def98c84b6cdf2eeea19ec5736e90e316df5206b upstream.

Before actually destrying a workqueue, destroy_workqueue() checks
whether it's actually idle. If it isn't, it prints out a bunch of
warning messages and leaves the workqueue dangling. It unfortunately
has a couple issues.

* Mayday list queueing increments pwq's refcnts which gets detected as
busy and fails the sanity checks. However, because mayday list
queueing is asynchronous, this condition can happen without any
actual work items left in the workqueue.

* Sanity check failure leaves the sysfs interface behind too which can
lead to init failure of newer instances of the workqueue.

This patch fixes the above two by

* If a workqueue has a rescuer, disable and kill the rescuer before
sanity checks. Disabling and killing is guaranteed to flush the
existing mayday list.

* Remove sysfs interface before sanity checks.
