io_uring: fix shared sqpoll cancellation hangs

[ 736.982891] INFO: task iou-sqp-4294:4295 blocked for more than 122 seconds. [ 736.982897] Call Trace: [ 736.982901] schedule+0x68/0xe0 [ 736.982903] io_uring_cancel_sqpoll+0xdb/0x110 [ 736.982908] io_sqpoll_cancel_cb+0x24/0x30 [ 736.982911] io_run_task_work_head+0x28/0x50 [ 736.982913] io_sq_thread+0x4e3/0x720

We call io_uring_cancel_sqpoll() one by one for each ctx either in sq_thread() itself or via task works, and it's intended to cancel all requests of a specified context. However the function uses per-task counters to track the number of inflight requests, so it counts more requests than available via currect io_uring ctx and goes to sleep for them to appear (e.g. from IRQ), that will never happen.

Cancel a bit more than before, i.e. all ctxs that share sqpoll and continue to use shared counters. Don't forget that we should not remove ctx from the list before running that task_work sqpoll-cancel, otherwise the function wouldn't be able to find the context and will hang.
