Meantime io_wq IO code path may share resource with normal iopoll code

So if any HIPRI request is submittd via io_wq, this request may not get resouce
for moving on, given iopoll isn't possible in io_wq_put_and_exit().

Applied, thanks!

[1/1] io_uring: fix IO hang in io_wq_put_and_exit from do_exit()
       commit: b484a40dc1f16edb58e5430105a021e1916e6f27

This causes a regression with the test/thread-exit.t test case, as it's
canceling requests from other tasks as well. I will drop this patch for

And this one has never hit my mailbox... Anyway, I'm confused with
the issue:

1) request tracking is done only for io_uring polling io_uring, which
shouldn't be the case for t/io_uring, so it's probably unrelated?

2) In case of iopoll, io-wq only submits a request but doesn't wait/poll
for it. If io_issue_sqe() returned -EAGAIN or an error, the request is
considered not yet submitted to block and can be just cancelled normally
without any dancing like io_iopoll_try_reap_events().

3) If we condense the code it sounds like it effectively will be
like this:

void io_wq_exit_start(struct io_wq *wq)
	set_bit(IO_WQ_BIT_EXIT, &wq->state);

	if (tctx->io_wq)

We set the flag, interrupt workers (TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL + wake up), and
wait for them. Workers are woken up (or just return), see
the flag and return. At least that's how it was intended to work.

What's missing? Racing for IO_WQ_BIT_EXIT? Not breaking on IO_WQ_BIT_EXIT
correctly? Not honouring / clearing TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL?

I'll try to repro later
