[dm-devel] [RFC PATCH 1/8] rqbased-dm: allow blk_get_request() to be called from interrupt context



Currently, blk_get_request() is not ready for being called from
interrupt context because it enables interrupt forcibly in it.

Request-based device-mapper sometimes needs to get a request
in interrupt context to create a clone.
Calling blk_get_request() from interrupt context should be OK
because blk_get_request() returns NULL without sleep if no memory
unless __GFP_WAIT mask is specified, and then the interrupt context
can plug queue to retry after and return immediately.

So this patch allows blk_get_request() to be called from interrupt
context by save/restore current state of irq.
