Subject[PATCH 32/40] async: introduce workqueue based alternative implementation
Date
Now that cmwq can handle high concurrency, there's no reason to
implement separate thread pool for async. Introduce alternative
implementation based on workqueue.

The new implementation uses two workqueues - async_wq and
async_ordered_wq. The former multithreaded and the latter
singlethreaded. async_call() schedules unordered asynchronous
excution on async_wq. async_call_ordered() schedules ordered excution
on async_ordered_wq. Functions scheduled using the ordered variant
are guaranteed to be excecuted only after all async excutions
scheduled previously have finished.

This patch doesn't convert any existing user.
