    Well fsaio is restored, but there's now considerable doubt over it due to
    the recent febril febrility.

    How bad is the clash with the readahead patches?

    Clashes with git-block are likely, too.

    Bugfixes come first, so I will drop readahead and fsaio and git-block to get
    this work completed if needed - please work agaisnt mainline.
