Subject: [PATCH 3/6] workqueue: Make worker_attach/detach_pool() update worker->pool
Date: Wed, 16 May 2018 21:34:45 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180517043448.3152269-4-tj@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180517043448.3152269-1-tj@kernel.org>

For historical reasons, the worker attach/detach functions don't
currently manage worker->pool and the callers are manually and
inconsistently updating it.

This patch moves worker->pool updates into the worker attach/detach
functions.  This makes worker->pool consistent and clearly defines how
worker->pool updates are synchronized.

This will help later workqueue visibility improvements by allowing
safe access to workqueue information from worker->task.
