Yeah - you NACKed that a year ago based on the fact it would never
get used by mainline code:
So, given the catch-22 you've just presented us can we revisit the
nfsd non-blocking I/O issue again? This affects anyone using DM
snapshots on their NFS servers and has nothing to do with HSMs
FWIW, you can still do non-blocking userspace I/O to a file, so this
XFS patch is still valid for mainline (that's how I tested it).
