Subject: [PATCH RFC net-next] Cancel any pending connection attempts before taking down connection

This is a test patch being supplied for a trial run on syzkaller.

Explicitly cancel the workq before releasing resources that
will allow netns deletion, so that the connect request does
not trip up on a use-after free of the netns afterward.
