I've had a few asking me how to use AIO with the new eventfd thing with 
libaio, but not knowing libaio status I told them to either contact libaio 
developers or use the direct KAIO syscall interface (what I used in my 
example code).
But all ppl that asked, were libaio users, so a library update would be 
welcome from them IMO.
