The patch was sent out 7h ago. My suggestion would be to at least see
what other people may have commented or posted on the topic first, instead
of just ignoring it point blank and sending something else out.

A good way to start a discussion would be to reply to my email in this
very thread, with why you think an alternate solution might be better.
Or point out of there are errors in it. Just ignoring what else has been
posted just comes off as rude, to be honest.

You've got patches in for io_uring in the past, and I'd surely like to
see that continue. But working together is helping each other out, not
working in a vacuum, pretending not to see what else is being discussed
or posted.
