Subject: Re: [f2fs-dev] [PATCH v5] f2fs: fix performance issue observed with
 multi-thread sequential read

This reverts the commit - "b93f771 - f2fs: remove writepages lock"
to fix the drop in sequential read throughput.

Test: ./tiotest -t 32 -d /data/tio_tmp -f 32 -b 524288 -k 1 -k 3 -L
device: UFS

Before -
read throughput: 185 MB/s
total read requests: 85177 (of these ~80000 are 4KB size requests).
total write requests: 2546 (of these ~2208 requests are written in 512KB).

After -
read throughput: 758 MB/s
total read requests: 2417 (of these ~2042 are 512KB reads).
total write requests: 2701 (of these ~2034 requests are written in 512KB).

Change log from v4:
 - add __should_serialize_io
 - fix wrong condition
