[PATCH 3.11 066/128] virtio-scsi: avoid cancelling uninitialized work items

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Thu Jul 24 2014 - 06:10:00 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit cdda0e5acbb78f7b777049f8c27899e5c5bb368f upstream.

Calling the workqueue interface on uninitialized work items isn't a
good idea even if they're zeroed. It's not failing catastrophically only
through happy accidents.
