SubjectRe: [PATCH 06/16] vfs: Rename generic_file_aio_write_nolock

I would recommend this one on top:

Move it to fs/block_dev.c, rename it to blkdev_aio_write, export it _GPL
only and make it very clear it's only for block devices and raw.


And btw, I'm not actually sure it is the right thing for raw. Raw is
supposed to do direct I/O only, and in fact forced O_DIRECT on. Because
there are no holes it also can't fall back to direct I/O. So strictly
spreaking we could just use __generic_file_aio_write directly. That
is until we care about the hw disk caches..
