It should be fine. It's more like I just didn't like the idea of it.
Workqueue execution path isn't really light enough for an addition of
single smp_rmb() per work item execution makes any noticeable
difference. No harm in measuring perf delta but I'm highly skeptical
that there will be any difference which can be measured.
