Merge branch 'for-3.6-fixes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq

Pull another workqueue fix from Tejun Heo:
 "Unfortunately, yet another late fix.  This too is discovered and fixed
  by Lai.  This bug was introduced during this merge window by commit
  25511a47 ("workqueue: reimplement CPU online rebinding to handle
  idle workers") which started using WORKER_REBIND flag for idle rebind
  too.

  The bug is relatively easy to trigger if the CPU rapidly goes through
  off, on and then off (and stay off).  The fix is on the safer side.
  This hasn't been on linux-next yet but I'm pushing early so that it
  can get more exposure before v3.6 release."
