workqueue: always clear WORKER_REBIND in busy_worker_rebind_fn()

busy_worker_rebind_fn() didn't clear WORKER_REBIND if rebinding failed
(CPU is down again).  This used to be okay because the flag wasn't
used for anything else.

However, after 25511a47 "workqueue: reimplement CPU online rebinding
to handle idle workers", WORKER_REBIND is also used to command idle
workers to rebind.  If not cleared, the worker may confuse the next
CPU_UP cycle by having REBIND spuriously set or oops / get stuck by
prematurely calling idle_worker_rebind().

There was no reason to keep WORKER_REBIND on failure in the first
place - WORKER_UNBOUND is guaranteed to be set in such cases
preventing incorrectly activating concurrency management.  Always
