I don't think this is something anyone would like to tune.

In case you think it should be tunable I can add a parameter, of course.

In case there is already work queued later calls of
schedule_delayed_work() will be ignored.

So yes, I can drop the global boolean (I still need a local flag in
blkfront_delay_work() for controlling the need to call
schedule_delayed_work() again).
