My original fix was intentionally with cancel_delayed_work_sync()
because flush_delayed_work() didn't work. We knew that it'd miss some
last-minute queued change, but it's better than crash, so it was
applied in that way.

Then later on, the commit 33cd6ea9c067 changed cancel_*() to
flush_delayed_work() blindly, and the known problem resurfaced again.
