I was thinking of keeping a function-pointer (in io_kiocb) during
submission. That would have avoided this check......but argument count
differs, so it did not add up.

Sorry, I didn't quite understand the concern. CQE_F_BUFFER is not
used/set for write currently, so it looked compatible at this point.
Yes, no room for future flags for this operation.
Do you see any other way to enable this support in io-uring?

Yes, only user_data to distinguish. Do liburing helpers need to look
at cqe->res (and decide something) before returning the cqe to
application?
I see that happening at once place, but not sure when it would hit
LIBURING_DATA_TIMEOUT condition.
__io_uring_peek_cqe()
{
do {
io_uring_for_each_cqe(ring, head, cqe)
break;
if (cqe) {
if (cqe->user_data == LIBURING_UDATA_TIMEOUT) {
if (cqe->res < 0)
err = cqe->res;
io_uring_cq_advance(ring, 1);
if (!err)
continue;
cqe = NULL;
}
}
break;
} while (1);
}
