Hi Mike,

I haven't tested the patch with wireshark until now. My system also hangs shortly after it starts. I'm pretty sure I hit workqueues in my earlier tests via the block driver, but it's clearly not whatever wireshark is using. I'll look at it and try to post a fix. CCing the list to avoid this patch until then.

Are these patches dead, or are you planning another submission?  I ask
because I discovered that with them applied, firing up wireshark hangs
the box 100% repeatably, with wireshark never fully initializing.

Applying them to an otherwise virgin 4.14.20-rt17 to be sure...
