parallelizing rsync

I noticed a few external threads on problems with rsync performance
due to lack of parallelization.   For example modern Linux tools are
supposed to use "io_uring" for parallel i/o and some apparently have
done some experiments with this, and this is something we were looking
at as well. For example - google search shows multiple examples for
rsync with io_uring


Are there upstream patches already in progress for rsync this - or
should we submit something similar?
