async: Rename _special -> _domain for clarity.
Rename the async_*_special() functions to async_*_domain(), which describes the purpose of these functions much better. [Broke up long lines to silence checkpatch] Signed-off-by: Cornelia Huck <cornelia.huck@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com>
