Well, I just hope you didn't read the ev_async documentation, as
otherwise, it clearly fails to explain what they do :)

In any case, its quite simple: all you can do with them is generate
an event in another event loop that might currently be active in
another thread, which is the basic building block one needs for
inter-thread-communications.

You would also need current cvs, as this has not yet been released, and be
aware that some users experienced unspecified (and so far unreproducable)
problems with slightly older cvs snapshots, so ymmv.
