Subject: [PATCH] sched: Convert BUG_ON()s in try_to_wake_up_local() to

commit 383efcd00053ec40023010ce5034bd702e7ab373 upstream.

try_to_wake_up_local() should only be invoked to wake up another
task in the same runqueue and BUG_ON()s are used to enforce the
rule. Missing try_to_wake_up_local() can stall workqueue
execution but such stalls are likely to be finite either by
another work item being queued or the one blocked getting
unblocked.  There's no reason to trigger BUG while holding rq
lock crashing the whole system.

Convert BUG_ON()s in try_to_wake_up_local() to WARN_ON_ONCE()s.
