    Subject[PATCH] mtd: Fix bug using smp_processor_id() in preemptible ubi_bgt1d kthread
    mtd: Fix bug using smp_processor_id() in preemptible ubi_bgt1d kthread

    On a MIPS Cavium Octeon CN5020 when trying to create a UBI volume,
    on the NOR flash, the kernel thread ubi_bgt1d calls
    cfi_amdstd_write_buffers() --> do_write_buffer() -->
    INVALIDATE_CACHE_UDELAY --> __udelay(). Its __udelay() that calls
    smp_processor_id() in preemptible code, which you are not supposed to.
    Fix the problem by disabling preemption.

    The kernel error messages seen when trying to create UBI volume is
    BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000000] code: ubi_bgt1d/843
    caller is __udelay+0x14/0x70
