Sounds good!

This task is similar to the struct timer_list refactoring. Instead of
passing an arbitrary "unsigned long" argument, it's better that the
"parent" structure that holds the tasklet should be found using
container_of(), and the argument should be the tasklet itself.

Let me know if you need more detail on what that should look like! (And
as always, double-check the sanity of this work: perhaps the refactoring
creates more problems than it solves? Part of this work item is
evaluating the work itself.)
