    xfs: do not discard alloc btree blocks
    Blocks for the allocation btree are allocated from and released to
    the AGFL, and thus frequently reused.  Even worse we do not have an
    easy way to avoid using an AGFL block when it is discarded due to
    the simple FILO list of free blocks, and thus can frequently stall
    on blocks that are currently undergoing a discard.
    Add a flag to the busy extent tracking structure to skip the discard
    for allocation btree blocks.  In normal operation these blocks are
    reused frequently enough that there is no need to discard them
    anyway, but if they spill over to the allocation btree as part of a
    balance we "leak" blocks that we would otherwise discard.  We could
    fix this by adding another flag and keeping these block in the
    rbtree even after they aren't busy any more so that we could discard
    them when they migrate out of the AGFL.  Given that this would cause
    significant overhead I don't think it's worthwile for now.

commit e84661aa84e2e003738563f65155d4f12dc474e7

    xfs: add online discard support
    Now that we have reliably tracking of deleted extents in a
    transaction we can easily implement "online" discard support
    which calls blkdev_issue_discard once a transaction commits.
    The actual discard is a two stage operation as we first have
    to mark the busy extent as not available for reuse before we
    can start the actual discard.  Note that we don't bother
    supporting discard for the non-delaylog mode.
