Please do these as 4 separate tests so that it is easy to
isolate/reproduce failures caused by a specific test that is being
run.

Same comments as previous two patches, as well.

Even though e4defrag is not used, it's probably still a good idea to
call _require_defrag to check for systems that have a recent enough
ext4 to run defrag on. e.g. a recent fio on an old distro might
result in fio saying "I understand this job file" but then not be
able to run defrag...

Cheers,

Dave.
