cpan Linux::AIO 1.3 broken (fwd)

Let's wait until Marc fixes this the way he wants to.

In the meantime, perhaps go back to the version before AMD64 support was
added and apply this old patch of mine:

For a while Marc and I both had our own 1.1, 1.2, and now 1.3 versions, so
try applying that patch (or its concepts) against his 1.1 or 1.2 to see if
you get a clean apply.

But really 1.2 should be fine... the only reason we require 1.3 is for
the async unlink support we added for doing DELETE http requests without
blocking.  Unless you plan to run a webserver with PUT and DELETE enabled,
you could just change Perlbal to not require version 1.3.
