We just need to fix f2fs to support direct I/O on zone devices.  There
is not good reason not to support it, in fact the way how zoned devices
requires appends with the Zone Append semantics makes direct I/O way
safer than how f2fs does direct I/O currently on non-zoned devices.

Until then just supporting direct I/O reads on zoned devices for f2fs
seems like a really bad choice given that it will lead to nasty cache
