Subject: [GIT PULL] workqueue changes for v5.15-rc1
Date: Tue, 31 Aug 2021 06:50:55 -1000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hello, Linus.

There is a long-standing subtle destroy_workqueue() bug where a workqueue
can be destroyed while internal work items used for flushing are still in
flight. Lai fixed it by assigning a flush color to the internal work items
so that they are correctly waited for during destruction.

Other than that, all are minor cleanups.
