Has "libaio" package been ported to aarch64?

Asked by Anil Ranjan Roy Samanta Singhar on 2013-11-20

Hi,

My name is Anil Singhar and I work for Linaro. I would like to know if the "libaio" package has already been ported to aarch64.
In case it is not done, I would like to know the scope of any such porting required.

Thanks and Regards,
Anil

If you look at http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/trusty/libaio/trusty/view/head:/src/syscall.h you see
...
#elif defined(__aarch64__)
#include "syscall-arm64.h"
...
So it seems to me that libaio for trusty has got code for aarch64. (I do not know whether it works.)

(Remark: As far as I know the only official versions of the current Ubuntu releases are i386 and amd64, and I do not have any knowledge about the rules for porting to other architecture.)

Can you help with this problem?
