Subject: [PATCH 00/11] scsi: libsas: Remove in_interrupt() check

Folks,

In the discussion about preempt count consistency across kernel
configurations:

  https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20200914204209.256266093@linutronix.de

it was concluded that the usage of in_interrupt() and related context
checks should be removed from non-core code.

This includes memory allocation mode decisions (GFP_*). In the long run,
usage of in_interrupt() and its siblings should be banned from driver
code completely.

This series addresses SCSI libsas. Basically, the function:

  => drivers/scsi/libsas/sas_init.c:
  struct asd_sas_event *sas_alloc_event(struct asd_sas_phy *phy)
  {
        ...
        gfp_t flags = in_interrupt() ? GFP_ATOMIC : GFP_KERNEL;
        event = kmem_cache_zalloc(sas_event_cache, flags);
        ...
  }

is transformed so that callers explicitly pass the gfp_t memory
allocation flags. Affected libsas clients are modified accordingly.

The first six patches have "Fixes: " tags and address bugs the were
noticed during the context analysis.

Thanks!
