Actually, I was thinking of one workqueue for the whole of usbatm, not
one per device.  Isn't one per device overkill?  On the other hand, it
avoids the problem of multiple devices being initialized serially,
rather than in parallel.  Also, with workqueues, we lose the possibility
of quickly quitting heavy_init on disconnect by sending a signal...
