Subject[PATCH 07/32] aio: simplify cancellation
Date
With the current aio code there is no need for the magic KIOCB_CANCELLED
value, as a cancelation just kicks the driver to queue the completion
ASAP, with all actual completion handling done in another thread. Given
that both the completion path and cancelation take the context lock there
is no need for magic cmpxchg loops either. If we remove iocbs from the
active list before calling ->ki_cancel we can also rely on the invariant
thay anything found on the list has a ->ki_cancel callback and can be
cancelled, further simplifing the code.
