I still don't think this is a good general export, it has very
specialized use. For example, from the description it looks like this
can be generally used on any block device and when it returns, we have
synced the queue. This simply isn't true, there are absolutely no
guarentees of that nature unless the block driver itself implements the
__make_request() functionality and has taken proper precautions to
prevent this already.
