No need to resubmit it, Lorenzo has been out for a bit, but I'm sure
he'll pick this up as he catches up.

You might, however, fix the commit log:

  This is not an issue because hv_pci_onchannelcallback() is not slow,
  and it not a hot path.

This has at least one typo (I think you mean "and *is* not a hot
path").

I also don't understand the sentence as a whole because the
hv_pci_onchannelcallback() comment says it's called whenever the host
sends a packet to this channel, and that *does* sound like a hot path.

I also don't understand the "hv_pci_onchannelcallback() is not slow"
part.  In other words, you're saying hv_pci_onchannelcallback() is
fast and it's not a hot path.  And apparently this has something to do
with the difference between local_bh_disable() and local_irq_save()?
