[V3,4/7] PHYLIB: queue work on any cpu

Message ID 9a366f17b93a5e18777360481c94e6db763b45b7.1363617402.git.viresh.kumar@linaro.org

Phylib uses workqueues for multiple purposes. There is no real dependency of
scheduling these on the cpu which scheduled them.

On a idle system, it is observed that and idle cpu wakes up many times just to
service this work. It would be better if we can schedule it on a cpu which isn't
idle to save on power.

By idle cpu (from scheduler's perspective) we mean:
- Current task is idle task
- nr_running == 0
- wake_list is empty

This patch replaces the schedule_work() and schedule_delayed_work() routines
with their queue_[delayed_]work_on_any_cpu() siblings with system_wq as
parameter.

These routines would look for the closest (via scheduling domains) non-idle cpu
(non-idle from schedulers perspective). If the current cpu is not idle or all
cpus are idle, work will be scheduled on local cpu.
