workqueue: note the nested NOT_RUNNING test in worker_clr_flags() isn't a noop
The nested NOT_RUNNING test in worker_clr_flags() is slightly misleading in that if NOT_RUNNING were a single flag the nested test would be always %true and thus noop. Add a comment noting that the test isn't a noop. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Hillf Danton <dhillf@gmail.com> Cc: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org>
