.. and that btusb thing matches my observation that only a few BT drivers 
seem to use workqueues, and btusb_disconnect() isn't doing any work

Hmm. the USB disconnect doesn't call hci_dev_put(), it calls 
hci_free_dev() and doesn't seem to call the ->destruct thing. 

Although again, maybe that gets called indirectly.

So I'd put the cancel work in the actual disconnect routine. But maybe 
thar's just me.
