Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.10 26/31] io_uring: remove racy overflow list fast checks

From: Pavel Begunkov <asml.silence@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit 9cd2be519d05ee78876d55e8e902b7125f78b74f ]

list_empty_careful() is not racy only if some conditions are met, i.e.
no re-adds after del_init. io_cqring_overflow_flush() does list_move(),
so it's actually racy.

Remove those checks, we have ->cq_check_overflow for the fast path.
