I suspect memstick_detect_change() is supposed to be called by host
drivers, when they receive some kind of notification due to a card
being inserted or removed. I guess that happen (at least
hypothetically) also from atomic (IRQ) context.

As memstick_check() is doing hole bunch of operations, I am not sure
bypassing the work-queue is a good idea, if that is what you are
proposing.

I don't know.

Well, I am not sure I understand why you need to call
pm_runtime_get_noresume() from memstick_detect_change() in the first
place. Could you explain that in more detail?

Kind regards
