commit 5a6024f1604eef119cf3a6fa413fe0261a81a8f3 upstream.

When hot-adding and onlining CPU, kernel panic occurs, showing following
call trace.

In my investigation, I found the root cause is wq_numa_possible_cpumask.
All entries of wq_numa_possible_cpumask is allocated by
alloc_cpumask_var_node(). And these entries are used without initializing.
So these entries have wrong value.

When hot-adding and onlining CPU, wq_update_unbound_numa() is called.
wq_update_unbound_numa() calls alloc_unbound_pwq(). And alloc_unbound_pwq()
calls get_unbound_pool(). In get_unbound_pool(), worker_pool->node is set
as follow:

3592 /* if cpumask is contained inside a NUMA node, we belong to that node */
3593 if (wq_numa_enabled) {
3594 for_each_node(node) {
3595 if (cpumask_subset(pool->attrs->cpumask,
3596 wq_numa_possible_cpumask[node])) {
3597 pool->node = node;
3598 break;
3599 }
3600 }
3601 }

But wq_numa_possible_cpumask[node] does not have correct cpumask. So, wrong
node is selected. As a result, kernel panic occurs.

By this patch, all entries of wq_numa_possible_cpumask are allocated by
zalloc_cpumask_var_node to initialize them. And the panic disappeared.
