The basic problem is that heavy use of dsched (the disk scheduler) has
caused crashes and lockups ever since dsched went into the tree, and is
still causing crashes and lockups today. Several people have tried to
bandaid it but honestly I think the only correct solution is to remove it
and then start over from scratch at some future date with a better design.
So I would like to remove it, and I am soliciting opinions on that.
