[PATCH] Add DocBook documentation for workqueue functions



kernel/workqueue.c was omitted from generating kernel documentation.  This
adds a new section "Workqueues and Kevents" and adds documentation for some
of the functions.

Some functions in this file already had DocBook-style comments, now they
finally become visible.
