It would be good to know what the aio specs say (and what real applications 
expect) to happen on the current set of "single threading" events:

- exec
- fork (although davidxu is changing that)
- exit

And any others I don't remember.  We may find we need to perform an aio drain 
wait there if we switch to doing AIO in the process context.
