AIO_SUSPEND(3) Linux Programmer's Manual AIO_SUSPEND(3)
aio_suspend - wait for asynchronous I/O operation or timeout
int aio_suspend(const struct aiocb * const aiocb_list,
int nitems, const struct timespec *timeout);
Link with -lrt.
The aio_suspend() function suspends the calling thread until one of the
* One or more of the asynchronous I/O requests in the list aiocb_list
* A signal is delivered.
* timeout is not NULL and the specified time interval has passed.
(For details of the timespec structure, see nanosleep(2).)
The nitems argument specifies the number of items in aiocb_list. Each
item in the list pointed to by aiocb_list must be either NULL (and then
is ignored), or a pointer to a control block on which I/O was initiated
using aio_read(3), aio_write(3), or lio_listio(3). (See aio(7) for a
description of the aiocb structure.)
If CLOCK_MONOTONIC is supported, this clock is used to measure the
timeout interval (see clock_gettime(3)).
If this function returns after completion of one of the I/O requests
specified in aiocb_list, 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned, and
errno is set to indicate the error.
EAGAIN The call timed out before any of the indicated operations had
EINTR The call was ended by signal (possibly the completion signal of
one of the operations we were waiting for); see signal(7).
ENOSYS aio_suspend() is not implemented.
The aio_suspend() function is available since glibc 2.1.

One can achieve polling by using a non-NULL timeout that specifies a
zero time interval.
If one or more of the asynchronous I/O operations specified in
aiocb_list has already completed at the time of the call to aio_sus-
pend(), then the call returns immediately.
To determine which I/O operations have completed after a successful
return from aio_suspend(), use aio_error(3) to scan the list of aiocb
structures pointed to by aiocb_list.
The glibc implementation of aio_suspend() is not async-signal-safe, in
violation of the requirements of POSIX.1.
