Please drop this for now. It adds a lot of unused and untestede code
including a dead on arrival inode operation.

Once we are going to add actual multiple flusher threads we can revise
it. But I don't think for example that the operation in it's current
form makese too much sense - the most logical way to add multiple
flushers per filesystems would be having multiple bdis of some sort.
