I see what it is - if the io-wq is setup and torn down before the
manager thread is started, then we won't create the workers we already
expected. The manager thread will exit without doing anything, but
teardown will wait for the expected workers to exit before being
allowed to proceed. That never happens.

I've got a patch for this, but I'll test it a bit and send it out
