> Current sheepdog driver only serializes create requests in oid
> unit. This mechanism isn't enough for handling requests to
> overwrapping area spanning multiple oids, so it can result bugs like
> below:
> https://bugs.launchpad.net/sheepdog-project/+bug/1456421
> This patch adds a new serialization mechanism for the problem. The
> difference from the old one is:
> 1. serialize entire aiocb if their targetting areas overwrap
> 2. serialize all requests (read, write, and discard), not only creates
> This patch also removes the old mechanism because the new one can be
> an alternative.
