Commit e6c287b1512d ("sched: migrate_enable: Use stop_one_cpu_nowait()")
adds a busy wait to deal with an edge case where the migrated thread
can resume running on another CPU before the stopper has consumed
cpu_stop_work.  However, this is done with preemption disabled and can
potentially lead to deadlock.

While it is not guaranteed that the cpu_stop_work will be consumed before
the migrating thread resumes and exits the stack frame, it is guaranteed
that nothing other than the stopper can run on the old cpu between the
migrating thread scheduling out and the cpu_stop_work being consumed.
Thus, we can store cpu_stop_work in per-cpu data without it being
reused too early.
