Subject[PATCH] libsas: flush pending destruct work in sas_unregister_domain_devices()
We saw dozens of the following kernel waring:

It looks like we don't wait for sas destruct work properly
on tear down path, at least sas_deform_port() calls
sas_unregister_domain_devices() to schedule destruct work
to a workqueue and then calls sas_port_delete() to remove
the related sysfs files concurrently.

Dan tried to fix this with a different way:

but that patch is never applied. I take a better approach
as suggested by Johannes, that is waiting for pending destruct
work to remove child sysfs files and then removing the parent
sysfs files.
