Btrfs prioritize sync I/Os to be handled by async checksum worker earlier.
As a result, checksumming sync I/Os to larger logical extent address can
finish faster than checksumming non-sync I/Os to smaller logical extent
address.

Since we have upper limit of number of checksum worker, it is possible that
sync I/Os to wait forever for non-starting checksum of I/Os for smaller
address.

This situation can be reproduced by e.g. fstests btrfs/073.

To avoid such disordering, disable sync IO prioritization for now. Note
that sync I/Os anyway must wait for I/Os to smaller address to finish. So,
actually prioritization have no benefit in HMZONED mode.

This stuff is going away once we finish the io.weight work anyway, I wouldn't
worry about this.  Thanks,

Josef
