Subject[patch 076/100] SCSI: sg: fix q->queue_lock on scsi_error_handler path
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: FUJITA Tomonori <fujita.tomonori@lab.ntt.co.jp>

upstream commit: 015640edb1f346e0b2eda703587c4cd1c310ec1d

sg_rq_end_io() is called via rq->end_io. In some rare cases,
sg_rq_end_io calls blk_put_request/blk_rq_unmap_user (when a program
issuing a command has gone before the command completion; e.g. by
interrupting a program issuing a command before the command
completes).

We can't call blk_put_request/blk_rq_unmap_user in interrupt so the
commit c96952ed7031e7c576ecf90cf95b8ec099d5295a uses
execute_in_process_context().

The problem is that scsi_error_handler() calls rq->end_io too. We
can't call blk_put_request/blk_rq_unmap_user too in this path (we hold
q->queue_lock).

To avoid the above problem, in these rare cases, this patch always
uses schedule_work() instead of execute_in_process_context().
