Subject[PATCH RFC] virtio: hint if callbacks surprisingly might sleep
Date
A virtio transport is free to implement some of the callbacks in
virtio_config_ops in a matter that they cannot be called from
atomic context (e.g. virtio-ccw, which maps a lot of the callbacks
to channel I/O, which is an inherently asynchronous mechanism).
This can be very surprising for developers using the much more
common virtio-pci transport, just to find out that things break
when used on s390.

The documentation for virtio_config_ops now contains a comment
explaining this, but it makes sense to add a might_sleep() annotation
to various wrapper functions in the virtio core to avoid surprises
later.

Note that annotations are NOT added to two classes of calls:
- direct calls from device drivers (all current callers should be
fine, however)
- calls which clearly won't be made from atomic context (such as
those ultimately coming in via the driver core)

I think it is safe to add this now that the issues with the balloon
have been fixed.

Note that this is not bulletproof (nor is it inteded to be). The
intention is to make it easier for people to catch problems earlier.
