Subject[PATCH 4.14 048/183] blk-mq: turn WARN_ON in __blk_mq_run_hw_queue into printk
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ming Lei <ming.lei@redhat.com>


[ Upstream commit 7df938fbc4ee641e70e05002ac67c24b19e86e74 ]

We know this WARN_ON is harmless and in reality it may be trigged,
so convert it to printk() and dump_stack() to avoid to confusing
people.

Also add comment about two releated races here.
