Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 75/81] mlxsw: core: Do not use WQ_MEM_RECLAIM for mlxsw ordered workqueue

From: Ido Schimmel <idosch@...lanox.com>

[ Upstream commit 4af0699782e2cc7d0d89db9eb6f8844dd3df82dc ]

The ordered workqueue is used to offload various objects such as routes
and neighbours in the order they are notified.

It should not be called as part of memory reclaim path, so remove the
WQ_MEM_RECLAIM flag. This can also result in a warning [1], if a worker
tries to flush a non-WQ_MEM_RECLAIM workqueue.
