I think that adds more confusion than what is necessary, and I don't think
the approach is great to begin with as you now need various checks as well
for the workqueue pointer.

We're freezing the queue right after anyway, which will ensure that
nobody is going to hit an invalid workqueue pointer in terms of queueing.
This looks more like an ordering issue.

Andrew, can you please drop this series so we can work out the kinks and
get it properly queued up after?
