I want to get the block code out of the loop entirely. I'm a little
overloaded with work at the moment, but my plan was to add a mount_dax
equivalent to mount_bdev, and add support to the XFS buffer cache and
log code to go straight to DAX. For the buffer cache we'd still have
to double buffer to provide transaction gurantees, but for the log
formatting it directly to memory should also provide nice speedups.
