Let's get the fix down first. I *think* we can do it for 3.6-fixes.
Can't we do the following?

* Instead of MANAGING, add pool->manager.

* Fix the idle depletion bug by using pool->manager for exclusion and
always grabbing pool->manager_mutex. Hotplug can use pool->manager
to schedule rebind work (or UNBIND) to the manager.


Also, can you please base the fix patches on top of wq/for-3.6-fixes?
It's getting quite confusing.
