This makes sense, but...

...since the pending work item holds a reference to the notification
state, it's still not clear to me why or whether "genirq: Prevent use-
after-free and work list corruption" was needed.

If it's reasonable to cancel_work_sync() when removing a notifier, I
think we can remove the kref and call the release function directly.

Humour is the best antidote to reality.
