It's definitely easier to do the workqueue conversion as a first
step, and I agree adding support for the completion right away is
probably too much. Moving the work_struct into the dma_chan
is probably not too hard though, if you leave your current
approach for the cases where the tasklet is part of the
dma_dev rather than the dma_chan.
