Hmm... that's really surprising.  At this point, the only thing I can
suggest is to try using blktrace to see what's going on at the block
layer when the I/O's and discard requests are being submitted.  If
there are no dirty blocks in the page cache, I don't see how
data=ordered vs data=writeback would make a difference to how mount -o
discard processing would take place.
