    Heh, I was trying to figure out a simple way to do that and just
    didn't figure out del_timer_sync() would actually have a useful
    return value :)

    It's probably still good to precise explicitely in the comments
    that upon return of cancel_delayed_work(), the work queue might
    still be pending and that a flush and whoever called this may
    still need a flush_scheduled_work() or flush_workqueue() (provided
    it's running in a context where that can sleep)
