SubjectRe: [PATCHSET] backing-dev: replace private thread pool with workqueue

Well, the whole idea behind the new workqueue is unifying all those
dedicated pools of threads. If the conversion is too early given the
new workqueue implementation, we can postpone bdi conversion by one
more release cycle, but in the long run there is no point in keeping
these private thread pools.

Thanks.
