Yes, I think something like a device_task_struct may be needed at some
point. It could be used in some generic code for task scheduling and
management on the devices too. The KFD driver already implements a
scheduler and stuff, maybe some of this code can be generalized to be
useable by other drivers and a common userspace interface (at least to
some degree).
