Re: [RFC PATCH 0/2] Optimise io_uring completion waiting

It solves much of the problem, though still have overhead on traversing
a wait queue + indirect calls for checking.

I've been thinking to either
1. create n wait queues and bucketing waiter. E.g. log2(min_events)
bucketing would remove at least half of such calls for arbitary
min_events and all if min_events is pow2.

2. or dig deeper and add custom wake_up with perhaps sorted wait_queue.
As I see it, it's pretty bulky and over-engineered, but maybe somebody
knows an easier way?

Anyway, I don't have performance numbers for that, so don't know if this
would be justified.
