The most notable aspect of that particular Metalink jewel
is the quality of the writing...just lovely.

This relink is not necessary to get functional async I/O.
What is missing is the correct stats in /proc, yes, but
async does indeed function out of the box... I haven't relinked
my stuff and I have async I/O  (io_submit(),io_getevents() )
performing the I/O... 

Just FYI
