What do you mean by "these"?

worker threads exit as soon as workers_may_exit is set...  I don't see
any logic to make sure we don't lose any accepted connections (stuff
in the queue)

so yes, it looks normal to destroy worker_queue without looking to see
if any accepted connections are in the queue

Once the listener thread realizes that we're terminating and it will
no longer call accept, it needs some way to trigger an error on the
queue so that once the last connection is dequeued by a worker thread
subsequent pop operations fail in a way that worker treads know they
should exit.  And instead of exiting as soon as workers_may_exit is
set, worker threads should exit once they get the magic queue-is-dead
error from a pop operation.
