Subject[FSAIO][PATCH 4/8] Add a default io wait bit field in task struct

Allocates space for the default io wait queue entry (actually a wait
bit entry) in the task struct. Doing so simplifies the patches
for AIO wait page allowing for cleaner and more efficient
implementation, at the cost of 28 additional bytes in task struct
vs allocation on demand on-stack.
