aio: remove retry-based AIO
This removes the retry-based AIO infrastructure now that nothing in tree is using it. We want to remove retry-based AIO because it is fundemantally unsafe. It retries IO submission from a kernel thread that has only assumed the mm of the submitting task. All other task_struct references in the IO submission path will see the kernel thread, not the submitting task. This design flaw means that nothing of any meaningful complexity can use retry-based AIO. This removes all the code and data associated with the retry machinery. The most significant benefit of this is the removal of the locking around the unused run list in the submission path.
