aio: make aio_poll(ctx, true) block with no fds
This patch drops a special case where aio_poll(ctx, true) returns false instead of blocking if no file descriptors are waiting on I/O. Now it is possible to block in aio_poll() to wait for aio_notify(). This change eliminates busy waiting. bdrv_drain_all() used to rely on busy waiting to completed throttled I/O requests but this is no longer required so we can simplify aio_poll(). Note that aio_poll() still returns false when aio_notify() was used. In other words, stopping a blocking aio_poll() wait is not considered making progress. Adjust test-aio /aio/bh/callback-delete/one which assumed aio_poll(ctx, true) would immediately return false instead of blocking.
