just to expand on this: i dont think this should be an impediment to the
POSIX AIO patches. We should get some movement into this and should give
the capability to glibc and applications. Kernel-internal unification is
something we are pretty good at doing after the fact. (and if any of the
APIs dies or gets very uncommon we know in which direction to unify)
