This is bizarre.  Reading it, I note that I've written some buggy code
assuming that workqueues were, you know, *queues* -- not

I think it means that you cannot enqueue the _same_ struct work
repeatedly, though.  Not a problem, in practice, if you embed one
struct work in each instance of your other datastructure.  No?
