Follow-up question regarding AIX async IO and AIX CIO mount option

Reading through a lot of the IBM and Oracle documentation regarding Async IO within AIX and Oracle. The IBM doc says:

"Note: AIO I/Os performed against raw Logical Volumes or files opened in CIO mode do not use kproc server processes. The setting of maxservers and minservers have no effect in this case."

So, how is ASYNC IO accomplished (if at all) when executing against filesystems mounted with CIO?

Just trying to clarify this in my head.
