PrimaryLogPG::start_flush: don't use ORDERSNAP, eliminate the second …

I think that whole thing was a misguided attempt to avoid deleting head
if it exists in the base tier (in reality it doesn't matter since head
would have to be logically dirty and anything we actually care about
would be preserved by sending a new enough seq to cause a clone).

Introduced in 4843fd5, but the real
logical error happened in f3df501.

I suggest never backporting this patch.  If you want to try, keep in
mind that the last version didn't turn up as busted for 2 years.

Fixes: f3df501

osd,osdc: eliminate FLAG_ONDISK and helpers
The objecter actually always needs to get a response in order to
be able to not continually resend ops (even if the caller didn't
provide a callback).  Thus, it makes no sense for an MOSDOp to
ever not have FLAG_ONDISK set.  Therefore, we'll just remove the
helper and assume it's always there (it's safe to send a response
the client didn't ask for, the error paths already do that).  On
the Objecter side, we'll just unconditionally fill in ONDISK for
the benefit of pre-luminous OSDs.

Could you talk more about this change? for read ops, is it neccesary to wait for ondisk ack?

  1. there is now only one kind of reply (there used to be 'ack' and 'ondisk' replies)
  2. this changes makes it so we always request a reply for an operation. this particular bug was that we didn't request an ack, which meant that the client would never close it out and we would resend the request later when the pg moved.
  3. the other patches simplify cache flushing, which was originally more complicated because it was working around the bug (before we understood what was going on).
