Why the dance with ->prev_flush_start vs just calling queue_work()
again. queue_work() is naturally coalescing in that if the last work
request has not started execution another queue attempt will be
dropped.

I expect this only needs to be initialized once at driver init time.

It's not clear to me how this happens, shouldn't all flush completions
be driven from the work completion?

Shouldn't the wait_event_lock_irq() be here rather than in
async_pmem_flush()? That will cause the workqueue to back up and flush
requests to coalesce.

Why 2 locks?
