Well, maybe not *blind* sharing. But something more than the
disconnect threads currently have with current->ioprio.

Today an existing kernel thread would most certainly ignore a
sys_ioprio_set() in the submitter and then handle an aio syscall with
an old current->ioprio.

Something more smart than that is all I'm on about.
