 Thus, we cannot use it from an Apache release unless its:
We are not redistributing libaio.. libaio is a Kernel functionality
from Linux. We have an implementation that is just using a kernel
functionality available on any Linux Kernel. you need to install the
libaio header but the functiionality is part of the linux kernel.

Saying so would be the same as saying you can't use any OS that's
LGPL.. which is not the case.

It does, however we get a lot of performance boos if you use it.

it and that profile would need to not be activeByDefault.

I disagree.. the release should include it... our implementation is
apache licensed.
