Yeah, you're right (and Peter also pointed out the might_sleep). That is
likely to be the really fundamental issue.

You _can_ handle it (make the RCU callback just schedule the work instead
of doing it directly), but it does sound really nasty. I suspect we should
explore just about any other approach over this one.
