[PATCH] revert blockdev direct io back to 2.6.19 version
Andrew Vasquez is reporting as-iosched oopses and a 65% throughput slowdown due to the recent special-casing of direct-io against blockdevs. We don't know why either of these things are occurring. The patch minimally reverts us back to the 2.6.19 code for a 2.6.20 release.
