Subject[PATCH] net: usb: cdc_ncm: use new API for bh tasklet
This converts the driver to use the new tasklet API introduced in
commit 12cc923f1ccc ("tasklet: Introduce new initialization API")

It is unfortunate that we need to add a pointer to the driver context to
get back to the usbnet device, but the space will be reclaimed once
there are no more users of the old API left and we can remove the data
value and flag from the tasklet struct.

Signed-off-by: Emil Renner Berthing <>
Let me know if you know of a better way to get the usbnet device from
the cdc_ncn_ctx context.
