I need the spinlock to prevent the work from getting re-queued before
suspend_unblock.

I'm not sure what the best terminology is here, but cancel_work_sync()
only waits for work running on all the cpu-workqueues of the last
workqueue. So, if the caller queued the work on more than one
workqueue, suspend_blocking_work_destroy does not ensure that the
suspend_blocking_work structure is not still in use (it should trigger
the WARN_ON though).
