Subject: [RFC PATCH 3/3] chelsio: cxgb: Do not schedule a workqueue for external interrupts

cxgb's "elmer0" external interrupt handling code requires task context,
so originally a workqueue was scheduled for it from the hardirq handler.

Now that all of the external interrupt handling, elmer0 included, is run
from a threaded-irq context, just directly call the real handler.

Remove all the workqueue code that is now no longer needed, including
the spinlock used for synchronizing the workqueue's NIC regsiters access
against the irq handler.
