Long-term, all of these BUG_ON need to be removed as they imply that the
developer has no idea what went wrong and can not recover.  For
something like this, we "know" these will be fine and odds are they can
just be removed entirely.

I hate ?: notation that is not in a function parameter, any way you can
just change this to:
	if (z_erofs_workqueue)
		return 0;
	return -ENOMEM;

Christian, this isn't your fault at all, I'm not rejecting this patch,
just providing hints on what else you can do here :)

thanks,
