/* Background I/O service for Redis.
*
* This file implements operations that we need to perform in the background.
* Currently there is only a single operation, that is a background close(2)
* system call. This is needed as when the process is the last owner of a
* reference to a file closing it means unlinking it, and the deletion of the
* file is slow, blocking the server.
*
* In the future we'll either continue implementing new things we need or
* we'll switch to libeio. However there are probably long term uses for this
* file as we may want to put here Redis specific background tasks (for instance
* it is not impossible that we'll need a non blocking FLUSHDB/FLUSHALL
* implementation).
*
* DESIGN
* ------
*
* The design is trivial, we have a structure representing a job to perform
* and a different thread and job queue for every job type.
* Every thread wait for new jobs in its queue, and process every job
* sequentially.
*
* Jobs of the same type are guaranteed to be processed from the least
* recently inserted to the most recently inserted (older jobs processed
* first).
*
* Currently there is no way for the creator of the job to be notified about
* the completion of the operation, this will only be added when/if needed.
