[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 3/4] gfs2: ordered buffer writes are not sync



Currently gfs2 ordered buffer writes use WRITE_SYNC_PLUG as the IO
type being dispatched. They aren't sync writes; we issue all the IO
pending, then wait for it all. IOWs, this is async IO with a bulk
wait on the end.

We should use normal WRITE tagging for this, and before we start
waiting make sure that all the Io is issued by unplugging the
device. The use of normal WRITEs for these buffers should
significantly reduce the overhead of processing in the cfq elevator
and enable the disk subsystem to get much closer to disk bandwidth
for large sequential writes.
