Subject[RFC PATCH 15/22] aio: add aio_kernel_() interface
Date
From: Zach Brown <zab@zabbo.net>

This adds an interface that lets kernel callers submit aio iocbs without
going through the user space syscalls. This lets kernel callers avoid
the management limits and overhead of the context. It will also let us
integrate aio operations with other kernel apis that the user space
interface doesn't have access to.
