Adding a filter to prevent async post status event from being scheduled #964

We have been having some issues with too many cron events being scheduled with posts getting published. This is happening because we use custom post types as a storage mechanism for various things that don't contain any public information.

To prevent this from happening I've added a filter here where we can conditionally set the value to false and it will prevent the cron event from being scheduled.

For our implementation, we plan on doing something like:

add_filter( 'wpcom_async_transition_post_status_schedule_async', function( $value, $args ) {
    if ( 'my-post-type' === get_post_type( $args['post_id'] ) ) {
        $value = false;
    return $value;
}, 10, 2 );
