Subject: [PATCH 3.2 071/185] dm delay: fix a possible deadlock due to
 shared workqueue

3.2.54-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@...hat.com>

commit 718822c1c112dc99e0c72c8968ee1db9d9d910f0 upstream.

The dm-delay target uses a shared workqueue for multiple instances.  This
can cause deadlock if two or more dm-delay targets are stacked on the top
of each other.

This patch changes dm-delay to use a per-instance workqueue.
