Here is today's work:

It passes most of linux's libaio regression tests but I think the
code that returns EFAULT when passed bad adresses may be #ifdef DEBUG

There is also the problem of the libaio-linux.h which partially copied from
Linux's libaio.h and hence is GPL. I need it because programs that
#include <libaio.h> expect to have the various macros such as io_fdsync()

There is an oddity: I need to break transfers larger than PAGE_SIZE into
smaller chunks otherwise I get failures. I suspect this is a bug
in NetBSD AIO.
