Be aware that the below store can creep up and become visible before the
unlock. AFAICT that doesn't really matter, but still.

If you care what cpu the work runs on, you should schedule_work_on(),
regular schedule_work() can end up on any random cpu (although typically
it does not).
In particular schedule_work() -> queue_work() -> queue_work_on(.cpu =
WORK_CPU_UNBOUND) -> __queue_work() if (req_cpu == UNBOUND) cpu =
wq_select_unbound_cpu(), which has a Round-Robin 'feature' to detect
just such dependencies.
