[PATCH] aio: optimize io_submit_one()
This patch optimizes io_submit_one to call aio_run_iocb() directly if ctx->run_list is empty. When the list is empty, the operation of adding to the list, then call to __aio_run_iocbs() is unnecessary because these operations are done in one atomic step. ctx->run_list always has only one element in this case. This optimization speeds up industry standard db transaction processing benchmark by 0.2%.
