Subject[PATCH 0/2] blk-mq: fix oops caused by CPU hotplug
Hi Guys,

Dongsu Park reported[1] that kernel oops can be triggered easily by
CPU plug when there is pending I/O on virtio-scsi.

Turns out two problems exist and both can trigger oops by CPU plug:
- timeout handling vs CPU hotplug, especially unmapped hw queue tags
is still touched by timeout handler
- in case of shared tags, there is one bug about setting and checking
hctx->tags during CPU hotplug

The two patches fix the two problem, and in my virtio-scsi test
oops does disapper with the change.
