The readahead code was to blame, here.  I wonder if we can change the
logic there to not break larger I/Os down into smaller sized ones.
Fengguang, doing a dd if=file of=/dev/null bs=1M results in 128K I/Os,
when 128KB is the read_ahead_kb value.  Is there any heuristic you could
apply to not break larger I/Os up like this?  Does that make sense?

Cheers,
Jeff
