does this 'client' mean qemu block driver ?
my other question is , if we only bypass the O_SYNC flag,  and without
cache stored
at local disk(or memory),  so lots of read traffic maybe transfered
through network,
then how can we increase the read side performance?
so I think we can't discard the cache prefetch or read ahead support.
