The first part is moved to fsm_sch_event()
The second part disapear per design as state changes are done inside the
FSM.

:) yes, forgot the -1 from the first tests.

Doing things inside the top half is not very friendly with the system.
The goal of the patch is to build a clean atomic state machine.
Allowing the use of mutexes insures atomicity.

I notice that I forgot to point this out in the cover letter although it is
one of the design key.
I will update the cover letter.

Yes, if(work_pending()) return -EAGAIN

Thanks for the review
