I'm a big fan of FITRIM, especially as it should work on MD devices
as well, which are problematic for wiper.sh today. I originally proposed
FITRIM (without the name, though) back when first implementing wiper.sh,
and I really believe we should extend FITRIM to btrfs and xfs.

hdparm is picking up support for FITRIM in the next release,
and wiper.sh will use it when it can in place of raw TRIMs.

This remains my own preferred method for TRIM: offline, that is. :)

Cheers
