Subject[PATCH v3 20/22] memstick/r592: convert r592_io kthread into kthread worker API
Date
Kthreads are currently implemented as an infinite loop. Each
has its own variant of checks for terminating, freezing,
awakening. In many cases it is unclear to say in which state
it is and sometimes it is done a wrong way.

The plan is to convert kthreads into kthread_worker or workqueues
API. It allows to split the functionality into separate operations.
It helps to make a better structure. Also it defines a clean state
where no locks are taken, IRQs blocked, the kthread might sleep
or even be safely migrated.

The kthread worker API is useful when we want to have a dedicated
single thread for the work. It helps to make sure that it is
available when needed. Also it allows a better control, e.g.
define a scheduling priority.

This patch converts the r592_io kthread into the kthread worker
API. I am not sure how busy the kthread is and if anyone would
like to control the resources. It is well possible that a workqueue
would be perfectly fine. Well, the conversion between kthread
worker API and workqueues is pretty trivial.

The patch moves one iteration from the kthread into the kthread
worker function. It helps to remove all the hackery with process
state and kthread_should_stop().

The work is queued instead of waking the thread.

The work is explicitly canceled before the worker is destroyed.
It is self-queuing and it might take a long time until the queue
is drained, otherwise.

Important: The change is only compile tested. I did not find an easy
way how to check it in use.
