[PATCH 3.2 18/61] block: Relax a check in blk_start_queue()

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Tue Nov 21 2017 - 22:00:59 EST

3.2.96-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Bart Van Assche <bart.vanassche@xxxxxxx>

commit 4ddd56b003f251091a67c15ae3fe4a5c5c5e390a upstream.

Calling blk_start_queue() from interrupt context with the queue
lock held and without disabling IRQs, as the skd driver does, is
safe. This patch avoids that loading the skd driver triggers the
following warning:

WARNING: CPU: 11 PID: 1348 at block/blk-core.c:283 blk_start_queue+0x84/0xa0
RIP: 0010:blk_start_queue+0x84/0xa0
Call Trace:
