    Oi! I specifically added that so I could queue tasks which can sleep.

    Put a time limit on it if you must, but not one which prohibits the
    existing usage by the PCMCIA socket drivers.

    I'm beginning to think that I should have argued with Linus¹ when he told
    me to make it a generic thing rather than calling it pcmcia_queue_task()
