Looks good! I wonder if you're able to use Coccinelle to generate the
conversion patch? There appear to be just under 400 callers of
tasklet_init(), which is a lot to type by hand. :)

Also, have you found any other tasklet users that are NOT using
tasklet_init()? The timer_struct conversion had about three ways
to do initialization. :(
