> alloc_workqueue replaces deprecated create_workqueue().
> A dedicated workqueue has been used since the workqueue
> mlxsw_wq is used for FDB notif. processing with workitems that are
> involved in normal device operation && because it's a network device
> which can be depended upon during memory reclaim.
> Workitems &trans->timeout_dw and &mlxsw_sp->fdb_notify.dw,
> map to mlxsw_sp_fdb_notify_work (processes FDB notifications from the
> underlying device and resolves the netdev to which the entry points to
> and notifies the bridge using the switchdev notifier) and
> mlxsw_emad_trans_timeout_work (provides async EMAD register access)
> respectively. They require forward progress under memory pressure and
> hence, WQ_MEM_RECLAIM has been set.
> Since there are only a fixed number of work items, explicit concurrency
> limit is unnecessary here.
