workqueue: re-add lockdep dependencies for flushing

In flush_work(), we need to create a lockdep dependency so that
the following scenario is appropriately tagged as a problem:

  work_function()
  {
    mutex_lock(&mutex);
    ...
  }

  other_function()
  {
    mutex_lock(&mutex);
    flush_work(&work); // or cancel_work_sync(&work);
  }

This is a problem since the work might be running and be blocked
on trying to acquire the mutex.

Similarly, in flush_workqueue().

These were removed after cross-release partially caught these
problems, but now cross-release was reverted anyway. IMHO the
removal was erroneous anyway though, since lockdep should be
able to catch potential problems, not just actual ones, and
cross-release would only have caught the problem when actually
invoking wait_for_completion().

Fixes: fd1a5b04 ("workqueue: Remove now redundant lock acquisitions wrt. workqueue flushes")
