100% right. Since there obviously should not be any, it would be better
to check them. So I've endlessly asked you 'do you have any reason removing
the opportunity for that check?'. Overhead? Logical problem? Or want to
believe workqueue setup code perfect forever? I mean, is it a problem if we
check them?

100% right.
