Drivers shouldn't really mess with the readahead size, as that is a VM
concept.  Instead set it based on the optimal I/O size by lifting the
algorithm from the md driver when registering the disk.  Also set
bdi->io_pages there as well by applying the same scheme based on
max_sectors.

So do I get it right that readahead won't now be limited if you store lower
value to max_sectors? Why? I'd consider io_pages a "cached value" of
max_sectors and thus expect it to change together with max_sectors...

Shouldn't AOE set 2MB optimal IO size so that readahead is equivalent to
previous behavior?

So bcache is basically stacking readahead here on top of underlying cache
device. I don't see this being replicated by your patch so it is lost now?
Probably this should be replaced by properly inheriting optimal IO size?

Most to start untangling the bdi from the queue.  But I had to peddle
back on that in the follow on series anyway, so I can add this back.

Because more changes in this area in earlier versions of the patches.
But yes, this shouldn't be here, so I'll drop it.

Sure, I'll add a separate patch just for that.

Yes, I'll add another patch.
