Doesn't this logic needlessly jam sysrq handling if the irq_work cannot
be undertaken?

A console user could unwittingly attempt an !nmi_safe SysRq action on
a damaged system that cannot service interrupts. Logic that prevents
things like backtrace, ftrace dump, kgdb or reboot is actively harmful
to that user's capability to figure out why their original sysrq doesn't
work.

I think the logic to prohibht multiple deferred sysrqs should only
be present on code paths where we are actually going to defer the sysrq.
