Subject[PATCH] [media] sn9c20x: Remove deprecated create_singlethread_workqueue
The workqueue "work_thread" is involved in JPEG quality update.
It has a single work item(&sd->work) and hence doesn't require ordering.
Also, it is not being used on a memory reclaim path. Hence, the
singlethreaded workqueue has been replaced with the use of system_wq.

System workqueues have been able to handle high level of concurrency
for a long time now and hence it's not required to have a singlethreaded
workqueue just to gain concurrency. Unlike a dedicated per-cpu workqueue
created with create_singlethread_workqueue(), system_wq allows multiple
work items to overlap executions even on the same CPU; however, a
per-cpu workqueue doesn't have any CPU locality or global ordering
guarantee unless the target CPU is explicitly specified and thus the
increase of local concurrency shouldn't make any difference.

Work item has been flushed in sd_stop0() to ensure that there are no
pending tasks while disconnecting the driver.
