Yes, This patch is actually to revert 72e09ad107e7 commit.
But I found conflict while I do "git revert". so I just sent a normal patch :)

Thank you so much for your advice!
But I'm so sorry I didn't understand some points.

1. you said "both side" and I understand these as follows:
a) failure of allocation because of a high order and it is fixed
by 72e09ad107e7
b) kernel panic because of 72e09ad107e7
Are these two issues right?

2. So, as far as I understand your mention, these timers are
good to be changed to the delayed works And these timers are mca_timer,
mc_gq_timer, mc_ifc_timer, mc_dad_timer.
Do I understand your mention correctly?
If so, what is the benefit of it?
I, unfortunately, couldn't understand the relationship between changing
timers to the delayed works and these issues.

Could you please explain the above things again?

Thank you!
