HAMMER VFS - REDO implementation base code part 4/many
* Wait for BIOs to finish before issuing the media sync. Previously we
were issuing the media sync concurrently which worked only because
the operation was serialized by the disk driver.
This change has no effect on performance.
* For fsync mode 3 wait for BIOs to finish so the data is guaranteed
to at least be in the drive cache.
* Collapse hammer_io_wait_firm() into hammer_io_wait_all()
* Pipeline hammer_io_wait_all(). Instead of waiting for the running_io
count to hit 0, which can cause us to wait longer then necessary when
multiple entities are dirtying buffers, we now place all running I/Os
on a list along with a dummy entry for the waiter. When the dummy entry
becomes the head of the list the waiter returns.
This way new I/O's initiated during the wait do not contribute to
In particular this will improve fsync() operations which can flush the
UNDO/REDO FIFO in parallel with a full meta-data flush.
