But I think it will be less error-prone and nicer to still have this
patch, then move the killing logic from bdi threads to the forker task,
and then, as a separate patch on top of that, get rid of this removing
bdi from bdi_list part. I mean, this way the patch series will be more
logical and finer grained and easier to review.
