Alright, was trying to convert it and I'm still a bit worried. One of
the reasons I put it at the end of post_activation() is to allow
calling try_to_wake_up_local() from wakeup callback. This won't be
used by cmwq right now but making it symmetrical to sleep callback
would be more consistent, so... If we fire wakeup callback right
after activate_task() and allow try_to_wake_up_local() to be called
from it, wake up logic ends up being nested inside outer wake up which
is still in progress. Would that be safe too?
