I was wondering why I couldn't find the fs implementation.  How
annoying.  The posix and libaio wrapper interfaces are cumbersome, but
directly calling io_submit it would be perfect to queue up all of the
writes at once and then wait for their completion.  If the kernel
actually implemented it.  Sigh.
