oops... you hit me here. when i read your post, a memory was crawling back
into my mind. i already had this workqueue issue some months ago at
another place. it happens due to SWSUSP2 modifying
include/linux/workqueue.h so that the creation functions get one more
argument. so SWSUSP2 should patch the two aforementioned files and not
the linux-raid team.

sorry for the fuzz,
 sebastian
