Hi Dmitry -

Since a delayed_work is simply a work_struct and a timer_list, the only
overhead here is the one line timer function. A work_struct per button
is of course an addition to the original in both Alek's patch and mine,
but I guess there are no alternatives if gpio_get_value may sleep.

I did think about something like reschedule_delayed_work myself, but
tackling the locking issues seemed like too much work compared to this
simple solution.
