The function padata_reorder will use a timer when it cannot progress
while completed jobs are outstanding (pd->reorder_objects > 0).  This
is suboptimal as if we do end up using the timer then it would have
introduced a gratuitous delay of one second.

In fact we can easily distinguish between whether completed jobs
are outstanding and whether we can make progress.  All we have to
do is look at the next pqueue list.

This patch does that by replacing pd->processed with pd->cpu so
that the next pqueue is more accessible.

A work queue is used instead of the original try_again to avoid
hogging the CPU.

Note that we don't bother removing the work queue in
padata_flush_queues because the whole premise is broken.  You
cannot flush async crypto requests so it makes no sense to even
try.  A subsequent patch will fix it by replacing it with a ref
counting scheme.

If I'm not missing anything, still looks like get_cpu() and reorder_via_wq no
longer have an effect with this patch and can be removed.

You're right that they're not needed.  But we shouldn't mix clean-ups
with substantial changes (in case we break something this would make
bisection less efficient).  So feel free to send a patch on top of
this one to remove them.

Thanks,
