Folks,

The t1_interrupt() irq handler calls del_timer_sync() down the chain:

   sge.c: t1_interrupt()
     -> subr.c: t1_slow_intr_handler()
       -> asic_slow_intr() || fpga_slow_intr()
         -> t1_pci_intr_handler()
 	  -> cxgb2.c: t1_fatal_err()		# Cont. at [*]
       -> fpga_slow_intr()
         -> sge.c: t1_sge_intr_error_handler()
 	  -> cxgb2.c: t1_fatal_err()		# Cont. at [*]

[*] cxgb2.c: t1_fatal_err()
      -> sge.c: t1_sge_stop()
        -> timer.c: del_timer_sync()

This is invalid: if an irq handler calls del_timer_sync() on a timer
it has already interrupted, it will just loop forever.  That's why
del_timer_sync() also has a WARN_ON(in_irq()).

Included is an RFC patch series that runs the interrupt handler slow
path, t1_slow_intr_handler(), in a threaded-irq context.

This also leads to nice code savings across the driver, as some
workqueues and spinlocks are no longer needed.

Note: Only compile-tested. I do not have the hardware in question.

Thanks,
