I didn't need the callbacks to sleep too, I just needed the read-side
srcu bit.

There's an argument against making the callbacks able to sleep like that
in that you typically want to minimize the amount of work done in the
callbacks, allowing them to sleep invites to callbacks that do _way_ too
much work.

I haven't made my mind up if I care yet.. :-)
