It probably will not compile with current CVS glibc and will need some minor
tweaks, the last time it has been used was more than a year ago.
It has been (successfully) used with Red Hat 2.4.xx kernel backport of
kernel aio, but as 2.6.xx kernel aio is more limited than 2.4.xx backport
was, it is not really much useful.
