 * You can move a #QIOChannel from an #AioContext to another even if
 * I/O handlers are set for a coroutine.  However, #QIOChannel provides
 * no synchronization between the calls to qio_channel_yield() and
 * qio_channel_set_aio_context().
 * Therefore you should first call qio_channel_detach_aio_context()
 * to ensure that the coroutine is not entered concurrently.  Then,
 * while the coroutine has yielded, call qio_channel_set_aio_context(),
 * and then aio_co_schedule() to place the coroutine on the new
 * #AioContext.  The calls to qio_channel_detach_aio_context()
 * and qio_channel_set_aio_context() should be protected with
 * aio_context_acquire() and aio_context_release().
