    It would certainly be useful for speeding up fsck, if you could teach it
    to run parallel on all spindles of the disk (e2fsck only knows how to
    run parallel on multiple disks, and even that breaks with raid/lvm)
    A generic interface to give user space information about on what parts
    of a blockdevice they can run in parallel without too much seek overhead
    would be very nice (I believe XFS is trying to do something similar to
    optimize its IO performance)
