    fuse kio: Kill fiemap_worker() thread
    This is a preparation to move iterations to workqueue.
    Here we just kill kthread, and make it synchronous.
    Next patches will do it async again.

    Patchset description:
    Optimize fiemap ioctl
      This patch set optimizes fiemap ioctl by removing
      kthread creation. Instead of this, static work
      is used, so we safe some time on copy_process().
    Fiemap does not require separate kthread, since
    the most time the kthread is spending in waiting
    for fiter->ireq.iocount becomes 0. Instead of this,
    the generic kthread could queue another fiemap
    requests at this time. This is the thing the patch set
    Note, that we had a kthread for every fiemap request,
    and this may look more scalable. But this is not true,
    since the actions, fiemap does, is pretty small. So,
    I think for the most workload the single fiemap work
    is enough. If we meet a workload, where the single
    work is not enough, it will be pretty easy to make
    fiemap_work just as an array in struct pcs_cluster_core
    (to make it per-node or even per-cpu). But I think,
    it's not necessary at least till main_job or completion_job
    are per-node or per-cpu (fiemap requests are small subset
    of all requests going through main_job).
    code was taken as a base for the performance test and modified.
    The below is results and the test's code.
    Time of test execution on 3 extents-file (just randomly chosen
    number of extents):
    Before: real 0m11.069s
    After:  real 0m9.112s
    It became 17% faster, it was 21% slower.
    Kirill Tkhai (7):
          fuse kio: Extract fiemap iteration from fiemap_worker() to separate function
          fuse kio: Move it variable from stack to struct fiemap_iterator
          fuse kio: Kill fiemap_worker() thread
          fuse kio: Move position advance in fiemap_process_one()
          fuse kio: Move fiter ireq iocount assignment
          fuse kio: Introduce fiemap_work
          fuse kio: Async queueing of fiemap from work
