Currently the qmi_handle is initialized single threaded and strictly
ordered with the active set to 1. This is pretty simple and safe but
sometimes ineffency. So it is better to allow user to decide whether
a high priority workqueue should be used.

Every caller sets the new value to "0", so you should submit this when
you have a cast that actually sets it to "1".

Also, the new argument should be "bool" instead of "unsigned int" and
use "true" and "false" in the callers.

Thank you.

Can you please describe a scenario where this is needed/desired and
perhaps also comment on why this is not always desired?

Well, one scenario is that when the AP wants to check the status of the
subsystems and the whole QMI data path. It first sends out an indication
which asks the subsystems to report their status. After the subsystems send
responses to the AP, the responses then are queued on the workqueue of
the QMI handler. Actually the AP is configured to do the check in a specific
interval regularly. And it check the report counts within a specific delay after
it sends out the related indication. When the AP has been under a heavy
load for long, the reports are queue their without CPU resource to update
the report counts within the specific delay. As a result, the thread that checks
the report counts takes it misleadingly that the QMI data path or the subsystems
are crashed.

The patch can really resolve the problem mentioned abolve.

For narmal situations, it is enough to just use normal priority QMI workqueue.

Is it your intention to submit code that actually does what you describe
above?  If so, then (as David said) you should propose this change at
the time it will be needed--which is at the time you send that new
code out for review.

Even in that case, I don't believe using a high priority workqueue
would guarantee the improved behavior you think this would provide.

In case it wasn't clear already, this change won't be accepted
at this time (despite your explanation above).
