SubjectRE: [PATCH 7/9] scsi: megaraid_sas - Driver created the self work queue for OCR
Tomas,

The megasas_ocr_wq only used by online controller reset. Driver can either do return error or continue load by disabling the Online controller reset bit. I will discuss internally and post back today for the changes.

Regards,

Bo Yang

Then why do you check the return value if it can not fail?

You are allocating a lot of resources in the init function and when some of them is not
available (which is unlikely) you return with an error value. Why don't you want that for
create_workqueue too?

Is it safe enter the suspend mode with the workqueue still doing some job?
Shouldn't be the workqueue flushed in the suspend function?
