So what happens if there's an actual non-recoverable error that causes
perf_msg_cmd_send() to fail? Are you proposing it just requeues high
priority work forever?

I never really reviewed this stuff properly but it looks like it has a
bunch of problems. Using the high priority work queue for some low
priority setup work seems wrong, at the very least. The spad and msg
send loops also look like they have a bunch of inter-host race condition
problems as well. Yikes.
