Full ack ;-)

On linux there is such a lib available:
POSIX Asynchronous I/O for Linux (PAIOL) is an attempt to write a POSIX
AIO compliant API based on Linux kernel 2.6 native AIO API.

This library can work without patching the kernel. Kernel patches are
only needed if you want to use POSIX AIO features not available from
user-space or to improve performance

I don't know the status of the other OS on which nginx run, does anybody
on the list know?!
