Oh, no, we're not doing that. We can't do that. What we're doing is
to continue to process works which were queued on the now offline cpu
unless it has been flushed/cancled from one of the cpu down
notifications and the reason why we need to be able to fork after
active is clear is to guarantee those flush/cancels don't deadlock.

Thanks.
