The limitation here is a kernel limitation. Squid has workarounds for
exactly the same thing - and it has drivers for AIO too, and *they*
still need to deal with blocking file descriptors for actual physical

Sadly, 'everything is a file' breaks down when they don't all behave

The pattern of having a worker thread for physical IO is a good
pattern (on Linux), at least last I heard the underlying problems have
not been solved.
