       io_cancel - cancel an outstanding asynchronous I/O operation

       #include <linux/aio_abi.h>	   /* Defines needed types */

       int io_cancel(aio_context_t ctx_id, struct iocb *iocb,
		     struct io_event *result);

       Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.

       The  io_cancel()  system  call attempts to cancel an asynchronous I/O operation previously
       submitted with io_submit(2).  The iocb argument describes the operation to be canceled and
       the ctx_id argument is the AIO context to which the operation was submitted.  If the oper-
       ation is successfully canceled, the event will be copied into the  memory  pointed  to  by
       result without being placed into the completion queue.

       On success, io_cancel() returns 0.  For the failure return, see NOTES.

       EAGAIN The iocb specified was not canceled.

       EFAULT One of the data structures points to invalid data.

       EINVAL The AIO context specified by ctx_id is invalid.

       ENOSYS io_cancel() is not implemented on this architecture.

       The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5.

       io_cancel()  is	Linux-specific and should not be used in programs that are intended to be

       Glibc does not provide a wrapper function for this system call.	You could invoke it using
       syscall(2).   But  instead, you probably want to use the io_cancel() wrapper function pro-
       vided by libaio.

       Note that the libaio wrapper function uses a different type (io_context_t) for the  ctx_id
       argument.   Note  also that the libaio wrapper does not follow the usual C library conven-
       tions for indicating errors: on error it returns a negated error number (the  negative  of
       one  of	the values listed in ERRORS).  If the system call is invoked via syscall(2), then
       the return value follows the usual conventions for indicating an error: -1, with errno set
       to a (positive) value that indicates the error.
