 Remove create_workqueue

From: Bhaktipriya Shridhar <>

> alloc_workqueue replaces deprecated create_workqueue().
> A dedicated workqueue has been used since the workitem viz
> (&cwq-> which maps to oct_poll_req_completion) is involved
> in normal device operation. WQ_MEM_RECLAIM has been set to guarantee
> forward progress under memory pressure, which is a requirement here.
> Since there are only a fixed number of work items, explicit concurrency
> limit is unnecessary.
> flush_workqueue is unnecessary since destroy_workqueue() itself calls
> drain_workqueue() which flushes repeatedly till the workqueue
> becomes empty. Hence the call to flush_workqueue() has been dropped.
