  dcdbas dcdbas: Dell Systems Management Base Driver (version 5.6.0-3.2)

can be bisected to commit e23f22b5cb9e ("dcdbas: Make use of
smp_call_on_cpu()").

The reason is that smp_call_on_cpu(), introduced with commit df8ce9d78a4e
("smp: Add function to execute a function synchronously on a CPU"),
initializes a work_struct with automatic storage duration by means of
__WORK_INITIALIZER().

Use INIT_WORK_ONSTACK() there instead, just like the very similar
work_on_cpu() does.

Fixes: df8ce9d78a4e ("smp: Add function to execute a function
                      synchronously on a CPU")
