SLOW_WORK: Wait for outstanding work items belonging to a module to clear
Wait for outstanding slow work items belonging to a module to clear when unregistering that module as a user of the facility. This prevents the put_ref code of a work item from being taken away before it returns. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
