Revert "Get rid of _t suffix"

In the very least, a change like this requires discussion on the list.

The naming convention is goofy and it causes a massive merge problem. Something
like this must be presented on the list first so people can provide input...

fully split aio_pool from BlockDriver

Now that we have a separate aio pool structure we can remove those
aio pool details from BlockDriver.

Every driver supporting AIO now needs to declare a static AIOPool
with the aiocb size and the cancellation method. This cleans up the...

Fix DMA API when handling an immediate error from block layer (Avi Kivity)

The block layer may signal an immediate error on an asynchronous request
by returning NULL. The DMA API did not handle this correctly, returning
an AIO request which would never complete (and which would crash if...

Implement cancellation method for dma async I/O (Avi Kivity)

Move the dma helpers to a private aio pool, and implement a cancellation
method for them. Should prevent issues when cancelling I/O while dma is
in progress.

Introduce block dma helpers (Avi Kivity)

These helpers perform read/write requests on entire scatter/gather lists,
relieving the device emulation code from mapping and unmapping physical
memory, and from looping when map resources are exhausted.

Add a scatter-gather list type and accessors (Avi Kivity)

Scatter-gather lists are used extensively in dma-capable devices; a
single data structure allows more code reuse later on.
