Subject[ 32/41] Block: use a freezable workqueue for disk-event polling
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu>

commit 62d3c5439c534b0e6c653fc63e6d8c67be3a57b1 upstream.

This patch (as1519) fixes a bug in the block layer's disk-events
polling. The polling is done by a work routine queued on the
system_nrt_wq workqueue. Since that workqueue isn't freezable, the
polling continues even in the middle of a system sleep transition.

Obviously, polling a suspended drive for media changes and such isn't
a good thing to do; in the case of USB mass-storage devices it can
lead to real problems requiring device resets and even re-enumeration.

The patch fixes things by creating a new system-wide, non-reentrant,
freezable workqueue and using it for disk-events polling.
