Hi Nikanth,

Thanks for the patch.

Please see my comment below.

I think the logic is reversed. Acc to linux/jiffies.h, "time_after(a,b)
returns true if time a is after time b",

We want it other way around, don't we ?

IMO, we need _not_ be so critical of the time. We could just set a flag
in pg_init_done and use 2 seconds in queue_delayed_work().
