My apologies.

When I do 'make mandocs', the only messages from workqueue.h that I noticed
were like the following:

Warn: meta author : no refentry/info/author queue_delayed_work
Note: meta author : see queue_delayed_work
Warn: meta author : no author data, so inserted a fixme queue_delayed_work
Note: Writing queue_delayed_work.9

But there are over 4000 of these messages when I make mandocs, so I assumed
ignoring them was OK.

Are these what you saw or was it something else?

Do you know how to get rid of these messages?

It's a bit of a pain rebuilding. When I make a change, it rebuilds everything.
My build of mandocs takes 27 minutes and generates over 9000 messages.
Somewhere in the middle of that must have been some other messages related to
workqueue.h that I missed.

However, I'll try to fix build errors in the future.
