Subject[PATCH 02/12] scsi: Add IRQ_DISABLE_SCSI_QCMD wrapper
Date
From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab@linux-iscsi.org>

This patch adds a IRQ_DISABLE_SCSI_QCMD() wrapper macro used by LLDs
that can now run in host_lock less mode, but still need interrupts disabled
using local_irq_save() before calling their lld_queuecommand() dispatcher.

jgarzik says this method is in fact slower than doing a spin_lock_irqsave() on
internal lib_lld_queuecommand() callers (as is done in libiscsi and libata)
but is still needed by the majority of lock_less LLDs.
