Subject: Re: leds: avoid flush_work in atomic context

Hi Pavel,

Thank you for the patch.

I've applied it however I'm not sure if it is an official
submission, since it doesn't look like (no [PATCH] tag
in the subject).

Beside that 'Fixes' tag is somewhat incomplete - it should be
generated using following git command:

git log -1 0db37915d912 --format='Fixes: %h ("%s")'

Fixed that and applied to the for-next branch and will push
it upstream after a bit of testing for rc3 or rc4.

Best regards,
Jacek Anaszewski
