Subject[PATCH v3 05/22] kthread: Add drain_kthread_worker()
Date
flush_kthread_worker() returns when the currently queued works are proceed.
But some other works might have been queued in the meantime.

This patch adds drain_kthread_work() that is inspired by drain_workqueue().
It returns when the queue is completely empty and warns when it takes too
long.

The initial implementation does not block queuing new works when draining.
It makes things much easier. The blocking would be useful to debug
potential problems but it is not clear if it is worth the complication
at the moment.
