in /sys/conf/NOTES there is a comment
| # Use real implementations of the aio_* system calls.  There are numerous

Are there still problems with aio?

I only found, but no
advisory or other hint that this was fixed (I think I must have missed
that somehow). And some closed PRs about fixed problems.

Do these affect aio.ko as well?
