I've got some hacked up xfs_io support, but Milosz was planning a
slight revision of the syscall interface that I'm still waiting for.

How would you want to automatically test for data integrity?  That requires
a powerfail or crash unfortunately and we don't have good infrastructure
for that yet.  I've tested it by adding a printk that RWF_DSYNC triggers
the same code path as O_DSYNC.
