Subject: Re: Discussion: is it time to remove dioread_nolock?

Hmm..... There's actually an even more radical option we could use,
given that Ritesh has made dioread_nolock work on block sizes < page
size.  We could make dioread_nolock the default, until we can revamp
ext4_writepages() to write the data blocks first....
