Subject[PATCH 4.4 127/268] scsi: mpt3sas: Do not mark fw_event workqueue as WQ_MEM_RECLAIM
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Hannes Reinecke <hare@suse.de>

[ Upstream commit 864449eea7c600596e305ffdc4a6a846414b222c ]

The firmware event workqueue should not be marked as WQ_MEM_RECLAIM
as it's doesn't need to make forward progress under memory pressure.
In the current state it will result in a deadlock if the device had been
forcefully removed.
