    Note that teh IO _completion_ can happen in user land. That does not mean
    that the IO page tear-down can (or should) happen at the same time.

    There are two issues here:
    - the data structures supporting the IO, built up and torn down from
    process space.
    - the IO itself.

    One is synchronous, the other is not.
