Following Eric's comments and in light of the most recent nfs and
keys patches here is yet another attempt at the basis of contained
usermode helper execution.

Initially I thought that creating threads to be used when executing
a helper wouldn't be feasible because the number of threads would be
far too large but the recent nfs and keys patches make me think that's
probably not the case.

There's more work to do on this, namely identifying already existing
threads for a requested environment, error handling for environments
that have gone away due to summary execution and similar. But I'd
like to get feedback as to whether I'm on the right track and what I
might be missing before spending more time on it.

Ian Kent (7):
      kmod - add workqueue service thread store
      kmod - teach usermodehelper to use service workqueues
      nfsd - use service thread if not executing in init namespace
      nfs - cache_lib use service thread if not executing in init namespace
      nfs - objlayout use service thread if not executing in init namespace
      KEYS - use correct memory allocation flag in call_usermodehelper_keys()
      KEYS: exec request key within service thread of key creator
