removes the asynchronous I/O context from the list of
I/O contexts and then destroys it.
can also cancel any outstanding asynchronous I/O
actions on ctx and block on completion.
For the failure return, see NOTES.
The context pointed to is invalid.
The AIO context specified by ctx is invalid.
is not implemented on this architecture.
The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5, August 2002.
is Linux-specific and should not be used in programs
that are intended to be portable.
Glibc does not provide a wrapper function for this system call.
The wrapper provided in
does not follow the usual C library conventions for indicating error:
on error it returns a negated error number
(the negative of one of the values listed in ERRORS).
If the system call is invoked via
then the return value follows the usual conventions for
indicating an error: -1, with
set to a (positive) value that indicates the error.
