So, while digesting this I started having doubts vs pcpu kthreads since
they're allowed on online CPUs. The bogus scenario here would be picking a
!active && online CPU, and see it go !online before the move_queued_task().

Now, to transition from online -> !online, we have to go through
take_cpu_down() which is issued via a stop_machine() call. This means the
transition can't happen until all online CPUs are running the stopper task
and reach MULTI_STOP_RUN.

migration_cpu_stop() being already a stopper callback should thus make it
"atomic" vs takedown_cpu(), meaning the above should be fine.
