Ok, so I like your patch better than mine, but note how syzbot
bisected this to the initial merge of the io_uring code.

I agree that code shouldn't have had this particular issue, but it
looks like it does.

Is there some way to race with io_ring_ctx_wait_and_kill(), which
_also_ does that ref_kill() thing? I'm not seeing how that could
happen, but maybe if the file ref counts get screwed up you have
->release() called early..
