How about something like this?

This
(a) depends on the just-merged "struct work" cleanup
(b) is totally untested
(c) probably kills you slowly and painfully
(d) may breed frikken sharks with lasers on their frikken heads!
(e) does compile, but I don't guarantee anything else.
(f) may, in other words, be totally broken

And, btw: it may not work. Just in case that wasn't clear. This is a quick
hack from me just sitting down and seeing if I can still do kernel
programming, or whether I'm just relegated to merge other peoples code.

Linus

PS. It might be broken.

PPS. David Howells added to participant list, hopefully he can
double-check all my assumptions, since he's touched the workqueue code
last. Tag, you're it!
