workqueue: introduce create_rt_workqueue
Heiko Carstens [Mon, 13 Oct 2008 21:50:09 +0000 (23:50 +0200)]
create_rt_workqueue will create a real time prioritized workqueue.
This is needed for the conversion of stop_machine to a workqueue based
implementation.
This patch adds yet another parameter to __create_workqueue_key to tell
it that we want an rt workqueue.
However it looks like we rather should have something like "int type"
instead of singlethread, freezable and rt.
