But if there is no new job to be scheduled then no one will wake up the
sched->wake_up_worker and the condition in wait_event_interruptible is
reevaluated only when the wq head is waked up.

Not familiar with this problem as before it was done from
wait_event_interruptible it was done from scheduled work fired from
job's completion interrupt  and I don't remember any issues with it.

In either case I think both solutions are legit so Reviewed-by: Andrey
