The heuristic of failing the test only if not saving any io has false
negatives with overlayfs readahead() bug, but readahead() with overlayfs
always warns on "using less cache then expected", when actually, it is
using no cache at all.

Add another condition to fail the test if readahead did not use any
cache at all, which always detected the overlayfs bug.
