I had same the problem kworker going mad. I have been messing around with BIOS setting (overclocking), then Kworker started using 100% on core 0. Cleared the BIOS by taking out battery and replacing it, this stopped the Kworker problem for me.
... hew, I'm feeling sorry about it, but I red your explanations and didn't manage to solve that trouble on my computer! :'(
Still presently, some kworker/0:x processes are using a lot of my CPU power, around 70/80%, and I can't understand the way to solve it...
