Remove kthread_bind() call from _cpu_down()
We are anyway kthread_stop()ping other per-cpu kernel threads after move_task_off_dead_cpu(), so we can do it with the stop_machine_run thread as well. I just checked with Vatsa if there was any subtle reason why they had put in the kthread_bind() in cpu.c. Vatsa cannot seem to recollect any and I can't see any. So let us just remove the kthread_bind. Signed-off-by: Gautham R Shenoy <ego@in.ibm.com> Cc: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Cc: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com> Cc: "Rafael J.
