Subject: [PATCH 3/4] scsi: libfc: Remove get_cpu() semantics in

The get_cpu() in fc_exch_em_alloc() was introduced in:

    f018b73af6db ([SCSI] libfc, libfcoe, fcoe: use smp_processor_id() only when preempt disabled)

for no other reason than to simply use smp_processor_id()
without getting a warning, because everything is done with
the pool->lock held anyway. However, get_cpu(), by disabling
preemption, does not play well with PREEMPT_RT, particularly
when acquiring a regular (and thus sleepable) spinlock.

Therefore remove the get_cpu() and just use the unstable value
as we will have CPU locality guarantees next by taking the lock.
The window of migration, as noted by Sebastian, is small and
even if it happens the result is correct.
