Just noticed, if our user do not give the hint via ioctl, f2fs can
provider hint to lower layer according to hot/cold separation ability,
it will be okay. But once user give his hint which may be more accurate
than filesystem, hint converted by f2fs may be wrong.

So what do you think of adding an option to control whether filesystem
can convert hint user given?

Thanks,
