Define online discard, please.

Some SSDs very much require TRIMming to perform well as they age. If
you're suggesting that we move from doing discards in journal commits to
a batched discard, like the one Lukas implemented, then I think that's
fine. If we need to reintroduce the finer-grained discards due to some
hardware changes in the future, we can always do that.

Cheers,
Jeff
