That was another item in the recent thread about workqueues: other
kernel code is very suited to the workqueue API, but only needs one
thread, not a thread per cpu. Would be nice to have a JUST_ONE_THREAD
flag to pass to create_workqueue().

I bet adding such a flag would help alleviate some of the "I have 1001
kthreads on my 16-way" complaints ;-)
