Isn't this a seperate issue? It looks like the RHAT bugzilla asks to be able to
insert directly at the head of the queue so you do you not have to wait for
possibly a hundred IO to complete before the test IO. Setting failfast just
means in case of en error it will be returned faster (no wasting time
retying).
