    I don't think we can simply call blk_queue_flush - we must ensure to
    never set more bits than the device allows. We'll just need two
    sets of flags in the request queue, with the sysfs file checking that
    it never allows more flags than blk_queue_flush.

    I'll prepare a patch for this on top of the current series.
