io_uring extensively uses task_work, but when a task is waiting

For some zc network tests eventually waiting for a portion of
buffers I've got 10x descrease in the number of context switches,
which reduced the CPU consumption more than twice (17% -> 8%).
It also helps storage cases, while running fio/t/io_uring against
a low performant drive it got 2x descrease of the number of context
switches for QD8 and ~4 times for QD32.
Not for inclusion yet, I want to add an optimisation for when
waiting for 1 CQE.
Ran this on the usual peak benchmark, using IRQ. IOPS is around ~70M for
that, and I see context rates of around 8.1-8.3M/sec with the current
Tried it out. No difference with bs=512, qd=4 is completed before
it gets to schedule() in io_cqring_wait(). With QD32, it's local tw run
__io_run_local_work() spins 2 loops, and QD=8 somewhat in the middle
with rare extra sched.
For bs=4096 QD=8 I see a lot of:
And if we benchmark without and with the patch there is a nice
CPU util reduction.
