Subject[RFC PATCH 13/17] btrfs: avoid sync IO prioritization on checksum in HMZONED mode
By prioritizing sync I/Os, btrfs calls btrfs_map_block() for blocks
allocated later before calling the function allocated earlier. By the
disorder of calling btrfs_map_block(), syncing on I/Os on larger LBAs
sometime wait for I/Os on smaller LBAs.

Since active checksum worker is limited to some specified number, it is
possible to wait for non-starting checksum on smaller LBAs. In such
situation, transactions are stucked waiting for I/Os on smaller LBAs to
finish, which is never finished.

This situation can be reproduced by e.g. fstests btrfs/073.

To avoid such disordering, disable sync IO prioritization for now. In the
future, it will be reworked to finish checksumming of I/Os on smaller I/Os
on committing a transaction.
