Workqueues get a rework

Ok, I know this won't be at the top of the list of "most important posts on LWN, ever", but anyway: In my native language, Danish, "nar" means "fool". So "DECLARE_WORK_NAR" initially caught my eye and my coffeine-overloaded brain read it as "Declare a work fool?!" It's funny, it's so easy to use a spelling or abbreviation that's "interesting" in at least one other foreign language. Someone I know created an in-house tool with a name aimed at conveying "speed" to the users. Well, speed in Danish is "fart". Not good. Not good at all. :-)
