Heh, I need to make workqueues and pools protected by a mutex rather
than spinlock, so I'm breaking out the locking after all. This is
gonna be a separate series of patches and it seems like there are
gonna be three locks - wq_mutex (pool and workqueues), pwq_lock
(spinlock protecting pwqs), wq_mayday_lock (lock for the mayday list).

Thanks.
