Pull io_uring thread rewrite from Jens Axboe:
 "This converts the io-wq workers to be forked off the tasks in question
  instead of being kernel threads that assume various bits of the
  original task identity.

  This kills > 400 lines of code from io_uring/io-wq, and it's the worst
  part of the code. We've had several bugs in this area, and the worry
  is always that we could be missing some pieces for file types doing
  unusual things (recent /dev/tty example comes to mind, userfaultfd
  reads installing file descriptors is another fun one... - both of
  which need special handling, and I bet it's not the last weird oddity
  we'll find).

  With these identical workers, we can have full confidence that we're
  never missing anything. That, in itself, is a huge win. Outside of
  that, it's also more efficient since we're not wasting space and code
  on tracking state, or switching between different states.

  I'm sure we're going to find little things to patch up after this
  series, but testing has been pretty thorough, from the usual
  regression suite to production. Any issue that may crop up should be

  There's also a nice series of further reductions we can do on top of
  this, but I wanted to get the meat of it out sooner rather than later.
  The general worry here isn't that it's fundamentally broken. Most of
  the little issues we've found over the last week have been related to
  just changes in how thread startup/exit is done, since that's the main
  difference between using kthreads and these kinds of threads. In fact,
  if all goes according to plan, I want to get this into the 5.10 and
  5.11 stable branches as well.

  That said, the changes outside of io_uring/io-wq are:

   - arch setup, simple one-liner to each arch copy_thread()

   - Removal of net and proc restrictions for io_uring, they are no
     longer needed or useful"
