This doesn't belong in this patchset.

Regardless, can we just implement the damned thing rather than
removing it? Plenty of people have asked for it and they still want
this functionality. I've sent a couple of different prototypes that
worked but got bikeshedded to death, and IIRC Ben also tried to get
it implemented but that went nowhere because other parts of his
patchset got bikeshedded to death.

If nothing else, just let me implement it in XFS like I did the
first time so when all the bikshedding stops we can convert it to
the One True AIO Interface that is decided on.
