This should work okay. But while you're making these changes, you
should remove the INIT_DELAYED_WORK(&hub->init_work, NULL) call in
hub_probe(). It is now unnecessary.

Is the cancel_delayed_work_sync(&hub->init_work) call in hub_quiesce()
going to get confused by all this?

It's worth mentioning that the only reason for the hub_init_func3 stuff
is, as the comment says, to avoid a long sleep (100 ms) inside a work
routine. With all the changes to the work queue infrastructure, maybe
this doesn't matter so much any more. If we got rid of it then there
wouldn't be any multiplexing, and this whole issue would become moot.
