    spi: spi-bfin-sport: Remove deprecated create_singlethread_workqueue · eac9837f

    The workqueue "workqueue" serves as a driver message queue.
    It has a single work item(&drv_data->pump_messages) and hence doesn't
    require ordering. Also, it is not being used on a memory reclaim path.
    Hence, the singlethreaded workqueue has been replaced with the use of
    System workqueues have been able to handle high level of concurrency
    for a long time now and hence it's not required to have a singlethreaded
    workqueue just to gain concurrency. Unlike a dedicated per-cpu workqueue
    created with create_singlethread_workqueue(), system_wq allows multiple
    work items to overlap executions even on the same CPU; however, a
    per-cpu workqueue doesn't have any CPU locality or global ordering
    guarantee unless the target CPU is explicitly specified and thus the
    increase of local concurrency shouldn't make any difference.
    Work item has been flushed in bfin_sport_spi_destroy_queue() to ensure
    that there are no pending tasks while disconnecting the driver.
