Subject[PATCH 2/6] Add support for per-file stream ID
Date
Writing on flash devices can be much more efficient, if we can
inform the device what kind of data can be grouped together. If
the device is able to group data together with similar lifetimes,
then it can be more efficient in garbage collection. This, in turn,
leads to lower write amplification, which is a win on both device
wear and performance.

Add a new fadvise hint, POSIX_FADV_STREAMID, which sets the file
and inode streamid. The file streamid is used if we have the file
available at the time of the write (O_DIRECT), we use the inode
streamid if not (buffered writeback). The fadvise hint uses the
'offset' field to specify a stream ID.
