This would be nice to keep out of the fast path, if possible.

Is this a compatible change, both for now but also going forward? You
could randomly have IORING_CQE_F_BUFFER set, or any other future flags.
Layout would also be different between big and little endian, so not
even that easy to set aside a flag for this. But even if that was done,
we'd still have this weird API where liburing or the app would need to
distinguish this cqe from all others based on... the user_data? Hence
liburing can't do it, only the app would be able to.

Just seems like a hack to me.
