Subject: [PATCH] bdi: Fix another oops in wb_workfn()

syzbot is still hitting NULL pointer dereference at wb_workfn() [1].
This might be because we overlooked that delayed_work_timer_fn() does not
check WB_registered before calling __queue_work() while mod_delayed_work()
does not wait for already started delayed_work_timer_fn() because it uses
del_timer() rather than del_timer_sync().

Make wb_shutdown() be careful about wb_wakeup_delayed() path.
