It's a part of the standard C library, apparently.  Five seconds with tkinfo
and the info docs for glibc found a whole section on Asynchronous I/O.  I
don't know if it's POSIX, but a comment at the top of the header file looks
awfully officious to me:

 * ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 6.7: Asynchronous Input and Output

No idea how to make it work, but I'm sure you can read the docs and find out
for yourself.
