Subject: [PATCH 5.8 02/70] io_uring: dont run task work on an exiting task

From: Jens Axboe <axboe@...nel.dk>

commit 6200b0ae4ea28a4bfd8eb434e33e6201b7a6a282 upstream.

This isn't safe, and isn't needed either. We are guaranteed that any
work we queue is on a live task (and will be run), or it goes to
our backup io-wq threads if the task is exiting.
