    Yes, probably. But I do not know how far we should move it.

    No, we can't do this?

    OK, perhaps we can check something else instead of PF_EXITING.
    But somehow we should ensuree that if task_work_add(twork) succeeds,
    then twork->func() will be called. IOW, if task_work_add() races with
    the exiting task, it should not succeed after exit_task_work().

    No, I didn't.
