If the bank change removal is unrelated to this change you should
do it in a seperate change.

This way it's easy for someone to find out if a regression is
caused by the TX workqueue bits, rather than this bank change
removal.

So, please submit this as a two patch sequence, one that does
the bank change line removal.  And then a second that does
the TX workqueue bits.

Thanks.
