Do you have a specific situation in mind where getting the lock of an
AioContext can take a long time? I know that the main thread can
block for considerable time, but QMP commands run in the main thread, so
this patch doesn't change anything for this case. It would be effective
if an iothread blocks, but shouldn't everything running in an iothread
be asynchronous and therefore keep the AioContext lock only for a short
