[S390] dont use kthread for smp_rescan_cpus().
Since git commit 3da1c84c00c7e5fa8348336bd8c342f9128b0f14 "workqueues: make get_online_cpus() useable for work->func()" it is safe to call get_online_cpus() from workqueue context. So remove the kthread workaround again. Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>
