Tejun Heo - Aug. 25, 2010, 3:47 p.m.
Barrier is deemed too heavy and will soon be replaced by FLUSH/FUA
requests.  Deprecate barrier.  All REQ_HARDBARRIERs are failed with
-EOPNOTSUPP and blk_queue_ordered() is replaced with simpler
blk_queue_flush().

blk_queue_flush() takes combinations of REQ_FLUSH and FUA.  If a
device has write cache and can flush it, it should set REQ_FLUSH.  If
the device can handle FUA writes, it should also set REQ_FUA.

All blk_queue_ordered() users are converted.

* ORDERED_DRAIN is mapped to 0 which is the default value.
* ORDERED_DRAIN_FLUSH is mapped to REQ_FLUSH.
* ORDERED_DRAIN_FLUSH_FUA is mapped to REQ_FLUSH | REQ_FUA.

Actually osd as support for FUA as well. It's on my todo
to implement it.

Thanks Tejun, as usual, after your visit there is more room
in the house.
