    The program which I'm trying is quite big - it's qemu-kvm
    v. 0.12.3 compiled with --enable-linux-aio. I bugged
    kvm folks about non-working aio support but immediately
    realized it's 32/64bit issue in the kernel, since 64bit
    kvm works just fine on the same kernel (which is 64bits).
    So I added 2 printfs into its linux-aio.c and re-run it.

    The diff against upstream qemu-kvm is this one:

    I'm not sure if it's useful or not.

    Qemu-kvm git tree is at

    I never dealt with aio before, so I'll need to familiarize
    myself with it before trying to create a smaller testcase.
