maybe I don't understand what you're trying to do, but you have N run_event_send
subreqs and each of those requests either calls tevent_req_done or
tevent_req_error(ETIMEDOUT) in case of a timeout.

The caller must have a state with the number of in-flight subrequests and then
you can just count the number of successfull calls and failures in the subreq
