This is a good idea, but shouldn't this logic go in verity_submit_prefetch()
prior to the struct dm_verity_prefetch_work being allocated? Then if no
prefeching is needed, allocating and scheduling the work object can be skipped.

Also note that you're currently leaking the work object with the early return.
