Subject: [RESEND net-next v2 04/12] net: ifb: convert tasklets to use new tasklet_setup() API

From: Allen Pais <>

In preparation for unconditionally passing the
struct tasklet_struct pointer to all tasklet
callbacks, switch to using the new tasklet_setup()
and from_tasklet() to pass the tasklet pointer explicitly.
