I definitely like the basic idea (without having read all the code so
far). Thanks for doing that work. On large systems the number of
kernel threads around can be mind boggling, and it will also get rid
of bizarreness like the ps2mouse thread.

I wonder have you ever thought about exposing this to user space too?
It can face similar problems for parallelization.
