kthread_worker: split code for canceling the delayed work timer
Patch series "kthread_worker: Fix race between kthread_mod_delayed_work() and kthread_cancel_delayed_work_sync()". This patchset fixes the race between kthread_mod_delayed_work() and kthread_cancel_delayed_work_sync() including proper return value handling. This patch (of 2): Simple code refactoring as a preparation step for fixing a race between kthread_mod_delayed_work() and kthread_cancel_delayed_work_sync(). It does not modify the existing behavior.
