From: Wu Fengguang on

It seems there are no strong objections against the 512KB readahead size.
(Or, anyone would prefer an 1MB readahead? Chris Mason picked a 4MB size
for btrfs after all.)

So would you include the patchset for wider tests in -mm? I reordered the
patchset a bit: the first 2 patches are good candidates for 2.6.34, while
the others may need longer tests.

Changes since RFC:
- move the lenthy intro text to individual patch changelogs
- treat get_capacity()==0 as uninitilized value (Thanks to Vivek Goyal)
- increase readahead size limit for small devices (Thanks to Jens Axboe)
- add fio test results by Vivek Goyal
