This one is telling you that the timer you're about to run hasn't been
registered with debug_objects. Most likely the work item hasn't been
initialized properly and so it hasn't had INIT_DELAYED_WORK() called on it.

This is similar. Now you're deleting a timer that debug_objects doesn't
know about.

Do you have workqueue debugging enabled too (DEBUG_OBJECTS_WORK)? I
would hope that work item debugging would say the same things and then
we would know that the work item itself wasn't initialized properly.
