    kernel - Add callback API for mpipe
    * Add a callback API for mpipe which uses a dedicated kthread,
      allowing clients to avoid deadlocks related to held locks during
      strategy calls.
    * Add mpipe_alloc_callback().  Use of this function also requires
      that MPF_CALLBACK be supplied to mpipe_init().
    * Add mpipe_wait().  This function may be used for clients which
      which to roll their own mpipe retry loop (or already have their
      own thread(s) to deal with it in a safe manner).
