FWIW, "I/O Completion Ports" are just a way of getting
completion notification from asynchronous I/O requests.
Once the kernel supports AIO, it will probably also
support completion ports. Whether it will support

are familiar with is another question; the scheduling
policy associated with Windows IOCP's may be protected
by a Microsoft patent.
