This is not my call actually. But beside comparing actual performance
between AIO and sys_epoll, one of the advantages that the patch had is
this :

arch/i386/kernel/entry.S | 4
drivers/char/Makefile | 4
fs/Makefile | 4
fs/file_table.c | 4
fs/pipe.c | 36 +
include/asm-i386/poll.h | 1
include/asm-i386/unistd.h | 3
include/linux/fs.h | 4
include/linux/list.h | 5
include/linux/pipe_fs_i.h | 4
include/linux/sys.h | 2
include/net/sock.h | 10
net/ipv4/tcp.c | 4
That is, it has a very little "intrusion" in the original code by plugging
in the existing architecture.
