Not sure I follow? Yes, we'll put this task again when the request
is freed, but not sure what you mean with juggling?

We could, probably making that part a separate helper then. How about the
below incremental?

Probably? Prefer not to make any definitive calls on that being possible or
not, as it's sure to disappoint. If it does and IOCB_WAITQ is already set,
then we'll punt to a thread like before.
