[Open-FCoE] [PATCH 5/5] scsi: bnx2fc: convert bnx2fc_l2_rcv_thread() to workqueue

This is not driven by the hotplug conversation but while I am at it
looks like a good candidate. Converting the thread to a workqueue user
removes also the kthread member from struct fcoe_percpu_s.

This driver uses the struct fcoe_percpu_s but it does not need the
crc_eof_page member, only the work item and fcoe_rx_list. So it is
removed there.

We had one thread so we only use the workqueue on the current CPU. If
someone knows how spread this nicely, it would only require the usage of
schedule_work_on() instead schedule_work() :)

This patch was only compile-tested due to -ENODEV.
