You should document this new parameter in
Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-driver-xen-blkback.

If you store the jiffies of the time when the grant was last used it
seems like we could get rid of the PERSISTENT_GNT_WAS_ACTIVE flag and
instead use the per-grant jiffies and the jiffies from the last scan
in order to decide which grants to remove?

Thanks, Roger.
