It's a problem unrelated to polling, though it may be a nice optimisation.
E.g. requests submitted with IOSQE_ASYNC will always get into io-wq.

Have you seen it yourself? When, io_uring is going away, it calls
io_wq_cancel_all(), which do send_sig(SIGINT) for all its workers. The
question is why this doesn't halt inflight send/recv down in the network

You have a bit outdated sources.
