I agree, but that's also the only time we do that 'tty_ldisc_halt()' that
cancels the timer. So if there is something that depends on the
flush_to_ldisc() not happening, the bug was pre-existing since it never
got rid of the flush to begin with, so the flush_to_ldisc() would happen
at some random later time as a result of the delayed-work timer.

That said, I suspect that from a sanity standpoint, I suspect something
like the appended migth be a good idea. But I think it's an independent
issue (and unless somebody can actually point to an actual problem, I'd
only apply something like this during the merge window, not after -rc4).
