This isn't the way to fix this. The crux of the problem is the fact that we
destroy the recv_workq at config time anyway, since it is tied to the nbd
device.

Fix this instead by getting rid of that, and have the nbd device teardown the
recv_workq when we destory the nbd device. Alloc it on device allocation and
stop alloc'ing it with the config. That way we don't have this weird thing
where we need recv threads to drop their config before the last thing.

And while you're at it would you fix recv_work() so it doesn't modify config
after it drops it's reference? Thanks,

Josef
