It doesn't have to be embedding work_struct in each stripe and
schduling them altogether. It's more about scheduling "work units"
rather than "workers" - ie. letting each scheduled work item handle
single work unit rather than making it dispatch multiple work items.
It may make controlling concurrency a bit more interesting but you can
always do it with workqueue_set_max_active(), which is the intended
usage anyway.
