Subject: preadv/pwritev (GNU/BSD) missing from sys/uio.h

I was examining sys/uio.h (to add _BSD_SOURCE), and found that 
glibc makes the preadv and pwritev functions available if __USE_BSD
is defined (_GNU_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE).
These have the same relation to readv and writev that pread and pwrite
have to read and write.

Will these be implemented?
