This might turn into nitpicking, but it's really only useful for
writing to block devices. Raw isn't a real character interface but
basically a convuled way to open a block device using O_DIRECT.

So I would recommend to renamed it to blkdev_aio_write, move it to
fs/block_dev.c and stop exporting it.
