You are on something. io_uring starts to be very solid but it isn't
100% flawless yet.

I am a heavy user of SQPOLL which now run flawlessly for me with 5.13.9
(Was running flawlessly since 5.12 minus few patches I did submit
recently) with my simple use-case (my SQPOLL thread isn't spawning any
threads like in your use-case).

The best is yet to come. I'm salivating by seeing all the performance
optimizations that Jens and Pavel are putting in place lately...
