Thanks for the patch, I tweaked the header a bit and also moved the
cancel_delayed_work_sync() to set_pool_mode(), please see:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/device-mapper/linux-dm.git/commit/?h=dm-4.19&id=eff8f4c73dd13f7d53015fc911d66f6671dd82b8

Please let me know if you have any issues with this, otherwise it is
staged for 4.19 inclussion.

Thanks,
Mike
