NMIs could happen at any time.  This patch makes sure that the safe
printk() in NMI will schedule IRQ work only when the related structs are
initialized.

All pending messages are flushed when the IRQ work is being initialized.

so, does this patch 'fix' 0001 (in a way)? shouldn't it then be folded?
sorry if I'm missing something.
