[dm-devel] [PATCH 3/4] dm-mpath: separate pg-init handling from process_queued_ios()



This patch is a preparation of the next patch, which fixes the issue
that ioctl isn't processed until any I/O is issued.  (And also it is
a preparation of another patch-set to remove multipath internal queue.)
No functional change.

This patch changes pg-init kickers to use activate_path() directly
instead of using process_queued_ios().

process_queued_ios() has been used for pg-init handling, which needs
a kthread context.
However, recent development introduced a special work, activate_path(),
for that purpose.  So there is no need to use process_queued_ios().
