This causes a behavioral change where if you ask to submit 1 but
there's nothing in the SQ ring, then you would get 0 before. Now
you get -EAGAIN. This doesn't make a lot of sense, since there's no
point in retrying as that won't change anything.

Can we please just do something like the one I sent, instead of trying
to over-complicate it?
