target: Remove __transport_execute_tasks() for each processing context
Nicholas Bellinger [Thu, 1 Dec 2011 02:21:24 +0000 (18:21 -0800)]
This patch removes the original usage of __transport_execute_tasks() ahead
of every transport_get_cmd_from_queue() call in transport_processing_thread().
This helps reduce se_device->execute_task_lock contention between qla2xxx wq
with target_submit_cmd() for READs and transport_processing_thread()
context servicing WRITEs with full payloads for I/O submission.

It also adds a __transport_execute_tasks() to kick the task queue again
without a *se_cmd descriptor with existing queue full logic, but this may
end up not being necessary.
