      Revert "ACPI: created a dedicated workqueue for notify() execution" · b976fe19
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This reverts commit 37605a69.
      
      Again.
      
      This same bug has now been introduced twice: it was done earlier by
      commit b8d35192, only to be reverted
      last time in commit 72945b2b
      
      .
      
      We must NOT try to queue up notify handlers to another thread than the
      normal ACPI execution thread, because the notifications on some systems
      seem to just keep on accumulating until we run out of memory and/or
      threads.
      
      Keeping events within the one deferred execution thread automatically
      throttles the events properly.
      
      At least the Compaq N620c will lock up completely on the first thermal
      event without this patch reverted.
