I understand that the stream ID is not related to specific priority
of an IO request. However, I'm wondering how this patch series
interacts with some of the other patch series that add cache priority
hints? Is there a danger of running out of space in the IO pipeline
for the additional cache hints if this is using 8 bits?

Some more comments inline.

Should this really be:

#define BIO_STREAM_OFFSET (BIO_POOL_OFFSET - BIO_STREAM_BITS)

Otherwise there is a risk of conflict if someone changes BIO_POOL_BITS.

Cheers, Andreas
