[PATCH] s390: deadlock in appldata

The system might hang when using appldata_mem with high I/O traffic and a
large number of devices.  The spinlocks bdev_lock and swaplock are acquired
via calls to si_meminfo() and si_swapinfo() from a tasklet, i.e.  interrupt
context, which can lead to a deadlock.  Replace tasklet with work queue.
