aio_suspend -- suspend until asynchronous I/O operations or timeout complete
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
aio_suspend(const struct aiocb * const iocbs, int niocb,
const struct timespec * timeout);
The aio_suspend() system call suspends the calling process until at least
one of the specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed, a signal
is delivered, or the timeout has passed.
The iocbs argument is an array of niocb pointers to asynchronous I/O
requests. Array members containing NULL will be silently ignored.
If timeout is a non-nil pointer, it specifies a maximum interval to suspend.
If timeout is a nil pointer, the suspend blocks indefinitely. To
effect a poll, the timeout should point to a zero-value timespec structure.
If one or more of the specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed,
aio_suspend() returns 0. Otherwise it returns -1 and sets errno to indicate
the error, as enumerated below.
The aio_suspend() system call will fail if:
[EAGAIN] the timeout expired before any I/O requests completed.
[EINVAL] The iocbs argument contains more than AIO_LISTIO_MAX
asynchronous I/O requests, or at least one of the
requests is not valid.
[EINTR] the suspend was interrupted by a signal.

The aio_suspend() system call is expected to conform to the IEEE Std
1003.1 (``POSIX.1'') standard.
The aio_suspend() system call first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
