In the beginning with batching unreg_list was a list that was used only
once in the lifetime of a network device (I think).  Now we have calls

list_move because for devices like veth pairs it is possible that
unregister_netdevice_queue will be called multiple times.

sparc64: Fix NMI startup bug which also breaks perf.

Doing NMI startup as an early initcall doesn't work because we need
to have SMP started up by then.

So we'd only NMI startup one cpu, which causes perf PMU grab to
BUG because the nmi_active count isn't what it's supposed to be.

This also points out that we don't have proper CPU up/down notifiers
for the NMI code which will need to be fixed at some point.

spi/pxa2xx pci: fix the release - remove race

Right now the platform device and its platform data is included in one big
struct which requires its custom ->release function. The problem with the
release function within the driver is that it might be called after the
driver was removed because someone was holding a reference to it and it
was not called right after platform_device_unregister(). So we also free
the platform device memory to which one might hold a reference.

[SCSI] qla2xxx: Return DID_NO_CONNECT when FC device is lost.

If the target device gets lost, this fix is needed, as it causes
negative unintended responses on basic I/O tests. If the target device
gets lost, the upstream qla2xxx driver returns
SCSI_MLQUEUE_TARGET_BUSY which causes an immediate retry without drop
in the number of allowed retries. This semantic change, as a result of
removing FC_DEVICE_LOST check is reasonable, as it only extends a
short transitional period, until the transport is called to notify
that the rport as lost (fc_remote_port_delete()). Once transport
notification is done, fc_remote_port_chkready() check will take over.
