Not as-is, but it could be easily added by repurposing unused fields
in the iocb.  The big question is if it should be done to the existing
IOCB_CMD_PREADV/IOCB_CMD_PWRITEV types, or if new SENDMSG/RECVMSG ones
should be added instead.

Also you really want to Cc the relevant lists, I've only accidentally
seen this on linux-kernel.

Thank you for the clarification. I think for the moment we have found another 
solution that we are discussing at linux-crypto. Therefore, I would currently 
not see the need for an additional support of CMSG in AIO.

Ciao
