When waiting for the completion of io, we need account iowait time. As
wait_for_completion() calls schedule_timeout(), which doesn't account
iowait time. While wait_for_completion_io() calls io_schedule_timeout(),
which will account iowait time.

So using wait_for_completion_io() instead of wait_for_completion()
when waiting for completion of io before exit_aio and io_destroy.

Thanks for the patch! It looks good to me but IMO this is just scratching
the surface.  E.g. for AIO we are mostly going to wait in read_events() by
wait_event_interruptible_hrtimeout() and *that* doesn't account as IO wait
either? Which is IMO far bigger misaccounting... The two case you fix seem
to be just rare cornercases so what they do isn't a big deal either way.

So I agree it may be worth it to properly account waiting for AIO but if
you want to do that, then please handle mainly the common cases in AIO
code.

Hello!

Not sure if there isn't some misunderstanding so I'll repeat what I've
said: Yes, above path will not account as IO wait time and IMO that is much
more common path which should be accounted as IO wait time. So I think that
without fixing that path, fixing cornercases like you did in your patch is
rather pointless.

Yes, that's what I'd do.
