Description Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2013-10-29 13:28:00 UTC

Most likely an upstream issue. I filed this bug merely to keep track of any progress and to reference the dev-libs/libaio dependency I gonna add to our samba-4 ebuilds.

According to log on IRC chat 

This AIO disable not only dependent on --without-aio-support

But also kernel AIO Support.

samba source3/wscript 
                        msg='Checking for linux kernel asynchronous io support',
                        headers='unistd.h stdlib.h sys/types.h fcntl.h sys/eventfd.h libaio.h',

Samba developer question was why compile it on kernel but not support it.

Please advise.
