I could try to resurrect my "work thread" stuff for skiboot ...

Ability to spawn a separate thread so that a given job has its own
stack. It can then be written as sequential code, but effectively
run asynchronously (return to either skiboot main loop or host
OS when either spending too much time or on delays).

I had a proof of concept working in mambo at some point...
