If you want to improve the codegen here further, I would suggest that
renumbering the IOCB flags to match the RWF flags would lead to better
codegen (can't do it the other way around; RWF flags are userspace ABI,
IOCB flags are not). iocb_flags() probably doesn't get any worse because
the IOCB_ flags don't have the same numbers as the O_ bits (which differ
by arch anyway).
