* On-demand readahead design.
*
* The fields in struct file_ra_state represent the most-recently-executed
* readahead attempt:
*
* |<----- async_size ---------|
* |------------------- size -------------------->|
* |==================#===========================|
* ^start ^page marked with PG_readahead
*
* To overlap application thinking time and disk I/O time, we do
* `readahead pipelining': Do not wait until the application consumed all
* readahead pages and stalled on the missing page at readahead_index;
* Instead, submit an asynchronous readahead I/O as soon as there are
* only async_size pages left in the readahead window. Normally async_size
* will be equal to size, for maximum pipelining.
*
* In interleaved sequential reads, concurrent streams on the same fd can
* be invalidating each other's readahead state. So we flag the new readahead
* page at (start+size-async_size) with PG_readahead, and use it as readahead
* indicator. The flag won't be set on already cached pages, to avoid the
* readahead-for-nothing fuss, saving pointless page cache lookups.
*
* prev_pos tracks the last visited byte in the _previous_ read request.
* It should be maintained by the caller, and will be used for detecting
* small random reads. Note that the readahead algorithm checks loosely
* for sequential patterns. Hence interleaved reads might be served as
* sequential ones.
*
* There is a special-case: if the first page which the application tries to
* read happens to be the first page of the file, it is assumed that a linear
* read is about to happen and the window is immediately set to the initial size
* based on I/O request size and the max_readahead.
*
* The code ramps up the readahead size aggressively at first, but slow down as
* it approaches max_readhead.
