Description Szabolcs Nagy 2014-03-24 17:40:05 UTC
lio_listio is declared in glibc as

	extern int lio_listio (int __mode,
			       struct aiocb *const __list[__restrict_arr],
			       int __nent, struct sigevent *__restrict __sig)
	  __THROW __nonnull ((2));

but the standard prototype is http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/functions/lio_listio.html

	int lio_listio(int, struct aiocb *restrict const *restrict, int, struct sigevent *restrict);

note the two restrict qualifiers in the second argument

these two prototypes are not compatible

A fix should make the extra restrict conditional on __USE_XOPEN2K, given 
that it's not there in older standards and affects type compatibility 
(unlike most uses of restrict which are only on the parameters themselves 
and so don't affect type compatibility).
