list pointed to by
aiocb_list must be either NULL
(and then is ignored), or a pointer to a control block on
which I/O was initiated using aio_read(3), aio_write(3), or lio_listio(3). (See

the aiocb structure.)

If this function returns after completion of one of the
I/O requests specified in
aiocb_list, 0 is returned.
Otherwise, −1 is returned, and
errno is set to indicate the error.
The call timed out before any of the indicated operations had completed.
The call was ended by signal (possibly the completion signal of one of the operations we were waiting for); see signal(7).
