You can't close that race in taskqueue_cancel().  You have to manage that
race yourself in your task handler.  For the callout(9) API we are only
able to close that race if you use callout_init_mtx() so that the code
managing the callout wheel can make use of your lock to resolve the races.
If you use callout_init() you have to explicitly manage these races in your
callout handler.
