Subject[PATCH v3 08/22] kthread: Initial support for delayed kthread work
Date
We are going to use kthread_worker more widely and delayed works
will be pretty useful.

The implementation is inspired by workqueues. It uses a timer to
queue the work after the requested delay. If the delay is zero,
the work is queued immediately.

In compare with workqueues, each work is associated with a single
worker (kthread). Therefore the implementation could be much easier.
In particular, we use the worker->lock to synchronized all the
operations with the work. And we do not use any flags variable.

On the other hand, we add a pointer[*] to the timer into the struct
kthread_work. The kthread worker need to know if the work is used
and if it could clear work->worker. For this, it needs to know
whether the timer is active or not.

Finally, the timer callback knows only about the struct work.
It is better be paranoid and try to get the worker->lock carefully.
The try_lock_thread_work() function will be later useful also when
canceling the work.

[*] I considered also adding the entire struct timer_list into
struct kthread_work. But it would increase the size from
40 to 120 bytes on x86_64 with an often unused stuff.

Another alternative was to add a flags variable. But this
would add an extra code to synchronize it with the state
of the timer.
