Subject[RFC PATCH 16/22] aio: add aio support for iov_iter arguments
Date
From: Zach Brown <zab@zabbo.net>

This adds iocb cmds which specify that memory is held in iov_iter
structures. This lets kernel callers specify memory that can be
expressed in an iov_iter, which includes pages in bio_vec arrays.

Only kernel callers can provide an iov_iter so it doesn't make a lot of
sense to expose the IOCB_CMD values for this as part of the user space
ABI.

But kernel callers should also be able to perform the usual aio
operations which suggests using the the existing operation namespace and
support code.
