That sounds similar to my first stab at this[1]. However Christian
pointed out that it is necessary to also free jobs even if there isn't a
new one to be scheduled. Otherwise it ends up with the jobs lying around
until something kicks it.

There is also the aspect of queueing the timeout for the next job - this
is the part that I don't actually understand, but removing it from the
wait_event_interruptible() invariable seems to cause problems. Hence
this approach which avoids changing this behaviour. But I welcome input
from anyone who understands this timeout mechanism!
