Here's the incremental, which is spread over 3 patches. I think this one
makes sense, as polled IO doesn't support buffered IO. And because doing
an async callback for completion is not how polled IO operates anyway,
so even if buffered IO supported it, we'd not use the callback for
polled IO anyway. kiocb_wait_page_queue_init() checks and backs this
up.
