I am a bit lost here David.

Denys got a crash that we cannot explain yet. He said he has no
multiqueue devices, so obviously my patch cant help him.

But this patch was fixing a real issue, I believe I pointed it twice
already...

I'll try to setup an environment to trigger this bug for real, but this
will take time, my dev machines are not multiqueue.
