Hmm, you missed at least two implementations of network aio in the 
previous year, and now with syslets we can have third one.

But it looks from this discussion, that it will not prevent from
changing in-kernel driver - place a hook into skb allocation path and
allocate data from opposing memory - get pages from another side and put
them into fragments, then copy headers into skb->data.
