What's the driving need to rip out functionality?  Why not actually submit 
some more in kernel implementations of aio and then evaluate if the api 
really needs to be ripped out or not (and use syslets or whatever to implement 
them)?  The api has room for changing how the rings are implemented -- that's 
what compat and incompat bits are for.
