1. I suggest to improve also this change description.
Do you try to explain here that a call of the function “free_workqueue_attrs”
(or “free_percpu”) would perform sufficient clean-up of system resources
in this use case?

2. You proposed to delete the function call “kfree(wq->rescuer)” from
the implementation of the function “rcu_free_wq”.
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/kernel/workqueue.c?id=c11d28ab4a691736e30b49813fb801847bd44e83#n3482
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v5.7-rc6/source/kernel/workqueue.c#L3482

This function name should be specified also in the patch subject,
shouldn't it?

3. Would you like to add the tag “Fixes” to the commit message?

Regards,
Markus
