    ok. But in general, this is a very nice idea!

    i've Cc:-ed Oleg. Oleg, what do you think? I think we should keep all
    the workqueue APIs specified in a form that makes them lockdep coverable
    like Johannes did. This debug mechanism could have helped with the
    recent DVB lockup that Thomas Sattler reported.
