This patch series adds support for the newly developed io_uring Linux AIO
interface. Linux io_uring is faster than Linux's AIO asynchronous I/O code,
offers efficient buffered asynchronous I/O support, the ability to do I/O
without performing a system call via polled I/O, and other efficiency enhancements.

Testing it requires a host kernel (5.1+) and the liburing library.
Use the option -drive aio=io_uring to enable it.

Benchmarks for the system at https://github.com/rooshm/benchmarks
io_uring has similar performance as libaio but supports cache=writeback.
Further performance enhancement will be implemented

There is currently an -EIO output when guests are booted from io_uring on ext4,
the error is reported upstream.

v8:
- adds fd_registration

v7:
- completes io-tests options
- misc fixes

v6:
- add slow path for short-read
- hooks up fsync
- enables qemu-iotests with aio options
- adds bdrv_parse_aio

v5:
- Adds completion polling
- Extends qemu-io
- Adds qemu-iotest

v4:
- Add error handling
- Add trace events
- Remove aio submission based code

  stubs: add stubs for io_uring interface
  util/async: add aio interfaces for io_uring
  blockdev: adds bdrv_parse_aio to use io_uring
  block/file-posix.c: extend to use io_uring
  block: add trace events for io_uring
  block/io_uring: adds userspace completion polling
  qemu-io: adds option to use aio engine
  qemu-img: adds option to use aio engine for benchmarking
  qemu-nbd: adds option for aio engines
  tests/qemu-iotests: enable testing with aio options
  tests/qemu-iotests: use AIOMODE with various tests
  block/io_uring: adds fd registration
