Subject[PATCH] scsi: message: fusion: avoid flush_scheduled_work() usage
Like commit c4f135d643823a86 ("workqueue: Wrap flush_workqueue() using a
macro") says, flush_scheduled_work() is dangerous and will be forbidden.

Commit 4d4109d0eb69 ("[SCSI] mpt fusion: Power Management fixes for MPT
SAS PCI-E controllers") added flush_scheduled_work() call into
mptscsih_suspend(). As of commit 4d4109d0eb69, there were several
schedule{,_delayed}_work() calls where flush_scheduled_work() from
mptscsih_suspend() meant to wait for completion, but which work items
is this flush_scheduled_work() call for was not explained.

Then, schedule_work("struct mptsas_hotplug_event"->work) and
schedule_work(MPT_ADAPTER->sas_persist_task) has been removed by
commit 3eb0822c6740 ("[SCSI] mpt fusion: Firmware event implementation
using seperate WorkQueue"), and
schedule_work("struct mptsas_send_discovery_event"->work) has been
removed by commit f9c34022eae9 ("[SCSI] mpt fusion: SAS topology scan
changes, expander events").

There still remains schedule_work("struct work_queue_wrapper"->work) call
in mptspi.c and schedule_delayed_work("struct mpt_lan_priv"->work) call in
mptlan.c , but I guess that these are not work items which
commit 4d4109d0eb69 meant to wait for completion because these are not per
MPT_ADAPTER work items. If my guess is correct, we no longer need to call
flush_scheduled_work() from mptscsih_suspend().
