Nope. I would have to add a `goto` to skip `dma_fence_enable_sw_signaling(chain)`.

I originally thought of that, but as other _signaling() functions have
sanity-checks inside, I decided to go with that solution.

This bug has been there since Sep 2022. So, adding a sanity check inside that
function should prevent any other issue of this same kind to enter the codebase
and stay there for years.
